Complete genome sequence of a beneficial plant root-associated bacterium, Pseudomonas brassicacearum

J Bacteriol. 2011 Jun;193(12):3146. doi: 10.1128/JB.00411-11. Epub 2011 Apr 22.


To shed light on the genetic equipment of the beneficial plant-associated bacterium Pseudomonas brassicacearum, we sequenced the whole genome of the strain NFM421. Its genome consists of one chromosome equipped with a repertoire of factors beneficial for plant growth. In addition, a complete type III secretion system and two complete type VI secretion systems were identified. We report here the first genome sequence of this species.
