Agrobacterium fabrum ARqua1 is a hybrid of Agrobacterium fabrum C58C bearing the megaplasmid pRiA4b. ARqua1 is used by many plant researchers to generate transgenic roots. The draft genome of ARqua1 includes a 249,350-bp contig that likely covers all of pRiA4b, and it will be a valuable resource to plant biologists.
