Nitrogenomics

Jump to: navigation, search

Nitrogenomics is the branch of the study of genomics pertaining to nitrogen utilisation and assimilation in organisms. Nitrogen is a primary nutrient essential for sustaining the life of every organism. Nitrogen is freely available in the atmosphere and Earth's crust and is generally assimilated by plants and microorganisms, then moved to higher organisms through the food chain. Genomics of nitrogen assimilation lie at different levels of organisms, from microbes to higher organisms, where different genetic controls regulate the actual assimilation. Related to nitrogen
