Geurts, Rene; Liu, Jieyu; Rutten, Luuk; Kulikova, Olga; Bisseling, Ton


Aspects of the present disclosure relate to genetically modified plants comprising NODULE INCEPTION (NIN) and NIN-LIKE PROTEIN (NLP) that have been genetically altered to be responsive to cytokinin so that the NIN or NLP protein can induce root nodulation upon appropriate signaling.
