The detection and large-scale isolation of rhizobial plasmids are first described. This is followed by a detailed discussion of the genetics of fast-growing Rhizobium species, with special emphasis on the plasmids involved in symbiotic nitrogen fixation - the so-called Sym-plasmids. Although a detailed functional map of the Sym-plasmids is not yet available for these three species it has been possible to give an account of the progress made so far in the physical mapping of functions and conserved regions on the Sym-plasmids.
