The bootstrapped 16S rDNA sequence-based neighbor-joining phylogeny has suggested that the marine species of the genus Agrobacterium have no relation to the terrestrial Agrobacterium species. Agrobacterium atlanticum IAM 14463(T) (a superscript (T)=type strain), Agrobacterium ferrugineum IAM 12616(T), Agrobacterium gelatinovorum IAM 12617(T), Agrobacterium meteori IAM 14464(T), Agrobacterium stellulatum IAM 12621(T) and IAM 12614, and the invalidly published marine species "Agrobacterium… CONTINUE READING
