Biocontrol fluorescent pseudomonads produce a number of antibiotic organic compounds, including 2,4-diacetylphloroglucinol, pyoluteorin, pyrrolnitrin, and phenazine. We previously classified rhizospheric fluorescent pseudomonads harboring antibiotic biosynthetic gene clusters into 10 operational taxonomic units (OTUs). In the present study, we report the complete genome sequences of selected strains from these OTUs. The genetic diversity of antibiotic biosynthetic gene clusters and their surrounding sequences correlated with the OTU classification. In comparisons of the biocontrol activity and distribution of antibiotic biosynthetic gene clusters, we found that the pyrrolnitrin biosynthetic gene cluster more effectively controlled the growth of Rhizoctonia solani.
