Taxonomy634500 - Erwinia billingiae (strain Eb661)
Last modifiedFebruary 27, 2018
Genome assembly and annotationi GCA_000196615.1 from ENA/EMBL

The genus Erwinia currently contains both plant pathogenic and nonpathogenic bacteria. The nonpathogenic Erwinia billingiae strain Eb661 is an epiphyte isolated from a pear tree in England in 1959 and is also known as LMG 2613. Epiphytic Erwinia strains can compete with growth and distribution of E. amylovora on flowers and may be applied as antagonists for control of fire blight, a devastating bacterial infection of apple, pear and related trees. Comparisons of the pathogenic Erwinia pyrifoliae strain Ep1/96 with this and another non pathogen Erwinia tasmaniensis Et1/99 indicates E.billingiae has just over 2000 unique genes compared to 600-900 for each of the other species. Some of these components probably represent factors to describe pathogenic and non-pathogenic Erwinia species (adapted from PMID 20565991).
