The research activity of the Microbial Genetics group of the Department of Animal Biology and Genetics in the University of Florence, led by Prof. M. Polsinelli, is mainly focused on the biology of the nitrogen-fixing bacterium Azospirillum brasilense. Collateral to this research, one project is being developed that concerns the monitoring of soil bacteria in natural environment and their identification. Within this project, the work reported in the present paper was aimed at the production of probes to be used in the study of the ecology of Azospirillum in the rhizosphere. G. Damiani, from National Research Council in Milan, has been the first one in Italy to apply the RAPD technique.
