Pseudomonas is a large and diverse genus of Gammaproteobacteria. To provide a framework for discovery of evolutionary and taxonomic relationships of these bacteria, we compared the genomes of type strains of 163 species and 3 additional subspecies of Pseudomonas, including 118 genomes sequenced herein.

During the investigation of the sudden and early onset of yellowing, followed by mortality of American elm (Ulmus americana L.) trees at the USDA Forest Service Northern Research Station in Delaware, Ohio, a phytoplasma of the clover proliferation group (16SrVI) was detected as the putative causal agent of the disease outbreak.

Arugula (Eruca sativa) is a leafy crucifer that is grown in coastal California as a fresh market commodity in bagged salad mixes. In January 2016, a foliar disease developed on commercially produced arugula in the Salinas Valley (Monterey County).

Rhizobacteria promote plant growth and disease control. However, in crop management practices cultivar and environmental conditions may also interfere with diseases outcome.

Cultivable land and productivity have been globally reduced as a result of industrialization and abiotic stresses (Gamalero et al. 2009). Drought, for instance, plays a major role in reducing plant growth parameters and also negatively interferes with plants’ physiology by causing losses in CO2 accumulation and then reducing photosynthetic rate or the photochemical efficiency (Muller et al. 2011; Sadeghipour and Abbasi 2012).

Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) produced by microorganisms are potential alternatives for the development of new nematicides.

We aimed to unravel the events which favor the seed-rhizobacterium Bacillus amyloliquefaciens strain ALB629 (hereafter ALB629) interaction and which may interfere with the rhizobacterium colonization and growth on the spermosphere of common bean.
