Sawada et al. 1993
Sawada H, Ieki H, Oyaizu H, Matsumoto S. Proposal for rejection of Agrobacterium tumefaciens and revised descriptions for the genus Agrobacterium and for Agrobacterium radiobacter and Agrobacterium rhizogenes. Int J Syst Bacteriol 1993; 43:694-702. Notes:
The terminology used by the authors is in line with many other taxonomic studies and does not negatively affect their main results; some improvements may nevertheless be possible. Contrasting the term "chemotaxonomic" with "phenotypic" is not recommended. Using the term "phylogenetic data" (or equivalent) for sequence data is not advocated. See the LPSN phylogeny page for details.
This emendation was not found in the expected IJSEM notification list.
Agrobacteriumrhizogenes is the correct name if this species is regarded as a separate species within a separate genus Agrobacterium.
The full TRBA 466 classification is: risk group = 1, note = "p".
