    About This Project

    Azolla is a symbiotic superorganism that captures all the nitrogen fertilizer it needs to grow from the air around it. Asia’s farmers have long known this, growing Azolla together with rice to provide a natural fertilizer to bolster rice productivity.

    Genome sequencing of Azolla is a big step toward potentially helping crops to use less synthetic nitrogen that would benefit farmers' bottom lines, the environment, and the prices we pay for food.
