The scope of the project was to identify the possible agricultural applications for bacteria induced to synthesize nitriles and VOCs. The study was randomized. Cucurbit seeds and Bacillus licheniformis were selected as the plant and microbial models for two trial studies. In trial 1, 90 cucumber seeds were cultured with B.licheniformis induced to synthesize VOCs (including ethanol, 3-methyl-1-butanol, pentanol), esters (ethyl acetate), and acetonitriles. After 2 weeks the induced bacteriadoi:10.7287/peerj.preprints.2611v2 fatcat:vbcmkhgdbjb6jhwqrjcqfzqmey
