Abstract

Allozyme electrophoresis was used to examine the relationships among species of , a genus of bacteria mostly causing gummosis in various graminaceous hosts. Allelic profiles were determined at 20 enzyme loci for 28 strains representing , three subspecies of sp. from , and . The genetic differences between species were at least 70% and between strains within a species up to 35% except for the subspecies of , which differed by up to 75%. The implications of these results for the classification of these spp. is discussed.
