Revised Phylogeny and Novel Horizontally Acquired Virulence Determinants of the Model Soft Rot Phytopathogen Pectobacterium wasabiae SCC3193
The strain numbers correspond to the following species: Yersinia pestis CO92 (outgroup), Dickeya dadantii Ech703, Dickeya dadantii Ech586, Dickeya dadantii 3937, Dickeya zeae Ech1591, Pectobacterium carotovorum subsp. brasiliensis PBR1692, Pectobacterium carotovorum WPP14, Pectobacterium carotovorum subsp. carotovorum PC1, Pectobacterium atrosepticum SCRI1043, Pectobacterium wasabiae WPP163, Pectobacterium wasabiae SCC3193 and Pectobacterium wasabiae CFBP 3304T. (A) OrthoMCL clusters were converted into an orthologs vs. species matrix and visualized as a heat map. The core genome is visualized in the middle of the figure, and species and strain-specific protein clusters can be found above and below the core. (B) The correlations between proteomes were calculated and visualized to indicate their phylogenetic relationships.
