From: Tapping into the maize root microbiome to identify bacteria that promote growth under chilling conditions

ExperimentGrowth conditionsCompartment studiedMain objective
IMaize in the fieldBulk soil vs. root endosphereDefine main root microbiome (field setup)
IIMaize in field-soil filled potsBulk soil vs. root endosphereDefine main root microbiome (growth chamber setup)
IIIMaize in field-soil filled pots and in vitroRoot endosphere of plants grown in soil- vs. in vitro-Define origin of root microbiome = seed or soil
IVMaize in field-soil filled pots under control and chilling conditionsRoot endosphere of maize grown under control vs. chilling conditionsDefine chilling-responsive families
