Rhizoctonia solani is a plant pathogenic fungus, which can infect a wide range of economic crops including rice. In this case, biological control of this pathogen is one of the fundmental way to effectively control this pathogen. The Pseudomonas parafulva strain PRS09-11288 was isolated from rice rhizosphere and shows biocontrol ability against R. solani. Here, we analyzed the P. parafulva genome, which is ~?4.7 Mb, with 4310 coding sequences, 76 tRNAs, and 7 rRNAs. Genome analysis identified a phenazine biosynthetic pathway, which can produce antibiotic phenazine-1-carboxylic acid (PCA). This compound is responsible for biocontrol ability against R. solani Kühn, which is one of the most serious fungus disease on rice. Analysis of the phenazine biosynthesis gene mutant, ?phzF, which is very important in this pathway, confirmed the relationship between the pathway and PCA production using LC-MS profiles. The annotated full genome sequence of this strain sheds light on the role of P. parafulva PRS09-11288 as a biocontrol bacterium.
