Several lines of evidence suggest that highly virulent bacterial human pathogens evolved from less virulent wider host range animal pathogens since human migration out of Africa. To investigate evolution of host specificity of bacterial plant pathogens, here we report a molecular evolutionary analysis of the model plant pathogen Pseudomonas syringae pv. tomato DC3000 and of close relatives that are pathogens of a diverse set of crop plants. Extensive host range tests on five different plant… CONTINUE READING
