The accommodation of nitrogen-fixing rhizobium bacteria inside plant cells requires reprogramming of root cortex cells by rhizobial signals. In this issue of Cell Host & Microbe, Singh et al. (2014) reveal that CYCLOPS, representing a novel class of transcription factors, links rhizobium-induced calcium signaling to reprogramming of root cortex cells.
