Discovery
Of Plants and Pathogens: A Model Relationship

Back to article | Note about images

Image shows circle of bright red and green lights.

This image shows the genome of the plant pathogen Pseudomonas syringae. In 2003, the Pseudomonas-Plant Interaction Project published the bacterium's full genome, making it the first model plant pathogen to be fully sequenced.

Tomatoes and a small leafy plant covered with disease spots.

Tomatoes and Arabidopsis thaliana, a renowned model organism for plant genetics, shown here infected with bacterial speck. The disease is caused by Pseudomonas syringae, one of the first plant pathogens to have its genome fully sequenced.

Scientist smiles at camera.

Alan Collmer, a plant biologist at Cornell University in New York, tackles research questions that address how plants defend themselves and the molecular secrets of successful pathogens. In 2003, the Pseudomonas-Plant Interaction Project, led by Collmer and Robin Buell of the Institute for Genomic Research in Maryland, announced the completed genome sequence of an important plant pathogen, Pseudomonas syringae.
