Next Generation of Plant-Associated Bacterial Genome Data

Cell Host Microbe. 2018 Jul 11;24(1):10-11. doi: 10.1016/j.chom.2018.06.009.


Plants interact with numerous pathogenic and beneficial bacteria. In this issue of Cell Host & Microbe, Karasov et al. (2018) and Garrido-Oter et al. (2018) use NextGen sequencing and data analysis from more than 2,000 bacterial genomes to draw hypotheses about interactions and evolution of microbes with their plant hosts.
