Title: Corn’s wild ancestors may have passed down beneficial bacterial species through seeds
Author: Johnston-Monje, D.; Raizada, M.N.; Institute for Community Engaged Scholarship
Abstract: Although seed bacterial communities were most similar among closely related corn and teosinte varieties, a core group of seed endophytes from the ancestral teosintes was preserved during the domestication process. Most seed endophytes helped plants obtain nutrients or encouraged growth, and some could travel outside the seed.
