Complete Genome of the Plant Growth-Promoting Rhizobacterium Pseudomonas Putida BIRD-1

J Bacteriol. 2011 Mar;193(5):1290. doi: 10.1128/JB.01281-10. Epub 2010 Dec 23.


We report the complete sequence of the 5.7-Mbp genome of Pseudomonas putida BIRD-1, a metabolically versatile plant growth-promoting rhizobacterium that is highly tolerant to desiccation and capable of solubilizing inorganic phosphate and iron and of synthesizing phytohormones that stimulate seed germination and plant growth.
