Abstract:
Bacterial endophytes are ubiquitous colonizers of the inner plant tissues where they do not normally cause any substantial morphological changes and disease symptoms. These microorganisms represent a potential source of novel natural products for medicinal, agricultural and industrial uses, such as antibiotics, anticancer agents, biological control agents and other bioactive compounds (Li et al., 2008). Endophytic bacteria can promote growth and increase the yield of the plant and also protect their host against phytopathogens. Genomic analysis can give a deeper insight into the capabilities of endophytes and their possible role in plant growth and health and use of available post genomic tools in understanding the functionality of endophytic bacteria in plants. This will help achieving eco-friendly approach for increasing the growth and yield of plants in a sustainable manner.
