Dangl and Grant labs: Comparative transcriptomics to understand the evolution of Pseudomonas syringae virulence

RNAseq analysis is combined with phylogenetics in this new PLOS Pathogens paper from the labs of Jeff Dangl and Sarah Grant. By characterizing the HrpL regulon across six diverse strains of P. syringae, they identify novel putative virulence factors and two novel type III effector families.
