Latest Pseudomonas syringae Stories
A common plant puts out a welcome mat to bacteria seeking to invade, and scientists have discovered the mat's molecular mix.
A protein called enhanced disease susceptibility 1 (EDS1) plays a central role in plants' ability to defend themselves from pathogens.
For decades, scientists and farmers have attempted to understand how a bacterial pathogen continues to damage tomatoes despite numerous agricultural attempts to control its spread.
Researchers funded by the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) have revealed a novel molecular mechanism that triggers plant infection by Pseudomonas syringae, the bacteria responsible for bacterial speck in tomatoes.
Researchers at the Public University of Navarra, the Polytechnic University of Madrid (CBGP), the University of Malaga, the University of Wisconsin and the Valencian Institute of Agricultural Research have managed to sequence the genome of the bacteria responsible for tuberculosis in the olive tree.
Under the supervision of a Virginia Tech plant pathologist, a group of high school, undergraduate, and graduate students isolated and characterized a formerly unknown group of bacteria.
Genome of a bacterium that is threatening the UK's historic landscape and could spread to North America.
Bean plants' natural defences against bacterial infections could be unwittingly driving the evolution of more highly pathogenic bacteria, according to new research published today in Current Biology.
A study published last week in the journal Science found that snow contains large amounts of Pseudomonas Syringae, a bacteria that can cause disease in bean and tomato plants.
Researchers have uncovered the link between two biochemical pathways that plants use to defend themselves against pathogens â€“ pathways that scientists have long believed worked independently of each other.
