Pseudomonas brassicacearum is a Gram-negative soil bacterium that infects the roots of Brassica napus,[1] from which it derives its name. Based on 16S rRNA analysis, P. brassicacearum falls within the P. fluorescens group.[2] It has also been shown to have both pathogenic and plant growth-promoting effects on tomato plants.[3]
