Pseudomonas syringae
pv phaseolicola (Psp) is the cause of halo blight on bean. It is a
legume pathogen of world-wide importance (from New York to East Africa) and an established experimental model. hrp genes were first extensively studied in P.s. phaseolicola and many important advances in our understanding of avr gene action involve this pathovar. Sequencing and annotation of the Psp genome and two plasmids (p1448A-A) and p1448A-B) was funded by NSF Plant Genome Research Program grant DBI-0077622, completed by The Institute for Genome Research (TIGR), and published in 9/05.
