New article about the genomic and genetic diversity within the Pseudomonas fluorescens complex is now published

Posted on Posted in Publications

We investigated the phylogeny of 93 sequenced strains within the Pseudomonas fluorescens complex using state-of-the-art whole-genome sequence-based methods such as the Genome Blast Distance Phylogeny approach. As a result we divided the P. fluorescens complex into eight phylogenomic groups that agree with previous works based on type strains. Digital DDH (dDDH; http://ggdc.dsmz.de) identified 69 species and 75 subspecies among the 93 strains. The eight groups corresponded to clustering with a threshold of 31.8% dDDH. The article was published in PLoS ONE.
