Sinorhizobium meliloti is a Gram-negative soil nitrogen-fixing bacterium that increases the yield of legumes. There is information in the literature about the complete genome sequence of this bacterium, in addition, the polysaccharide composition of the biofilm, which is actively involved in nitrogen fixation, has been studied. The well-known nucleotide sequence, as well as the genetic and biochemical features of S. meliloti make this organism an ideal model for biotechnological research. The purpose of this work was to analyze the current data provided in the literature on the symbiotic interaction of Sinorhizobium meliloti with the host plant, and to characterize the main directions of the use of this bacterium in agriculture, bioremediation and medicine.

Key words: Sinorhizobium meliloti, symbiosis, biotechnology.
