Pseudomonas syringae pv. tomato DC3000 (Pto DC3000) is the cause of bacterial speck on tomato and Arabidopsis, and represents an important model in molecular plant pathology. Sequencing and annotation of the 6,397,126 bp genome and two plasmids (pDC3000A and pDC3000B) was funded by a grant from the NSF Plant Genome Research Program, and completed by The Institute for Genome Research (TIGR) in 3/03. Ongoing functional genomic analyses include identification of Hrp effectors, novel virulence systems and virulence regulators as well as microarray analysis of the Pto DC3000-tomato interaction.
