Identification of conserved traits in fluorescent pseudomonads with antifungal activity.

A collection of 29 fluorescent pseudomonads, some with known biological control activity against a range of phytopathogenic fungi, were characterized phenotypically and genotypically by comparing carbon source utilization patterns, suppression of Pythium ultimum both in planta and in vitro and the potential to produce known secondary metabolites. Fatty acid… CONTINUE READING
