Default Pseudomonas

Thought of another one, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, it is found everywhere! It is becoming a more important pathogen being an opportunistic and all. And perhaps one of its siblings that is not a pathogen but a beneficial. According to my pathognesis text P. aeruginosa can be a beneficial bacterium too. Oh P. fluorescens would be cool since it is fluorescent .
