  • Biofilm formation and cellulose expression among diverse environmental Pseudomonas isolates 

    Ude, Susanne; Arnold, Dawn L.; Moon, Christina D.; Timms-Wilson, Tracey; Spiers, Andrew J. (Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2006-11)
    The ability to form biofilms is seen as an increasingly important colonization strategy among both pathogenic and environmental bacteria. A survey of 185 plant-associated, phytopathogenic, soil and river Pseudomonas isolates ...
  • Characterization of a novel air–liquid interface biofilm of Pseudomonas fluorescens SBW25 

    Koza, Anna; Hallett, Paul D.; Moon, Christina D.; Spiers, Andrew J. (Society for General Microbiology, 2009)
    Pseudomonads are able to form a variety of biofilms that colonize the air–liquid (A–L) interface of static liquid microcosms, and differ in matrix composition, strength, resilience and degrees of attachment to the microcosm ...
  • Genomic and genetic analyses of diversity and plant interactions of Pseudomonas fluorescens 

    Silby, Mark W.; Cerdeño-Tárraga, Ana M.; Vernikos, Georgios S.; Giddens, Stephen R.; Jackson, Robert W.; Preston, Gail M.; Zhang, Xue-Xian; Moon, Christina D.; Gehrig, Stefanie M.; Godfrey, Scott A.

(BioMed Central, 2009-05)
    Background: Pseudomonas fluorescens are common soil bacteria that can improve plant health through nutrient cycling, pathogen antagonism and induction of plant defenses. The genome sequences of strains SBW25 and Pf0-1 were ...
