Research Project: DETECTION, IDENTIFICATION AND GENETIC ANALYSIS OF ‘CANDIDATUS LIBERIBACTER ASIATICUS’, CITRUS HONGLONGBING BACTERIUM

Location: Crop Diseases, Pests and Genetics

Project Number: 5302-22000-010-18
Project Type: Reimbursable

Start Date: Oct 01, 2011
End Date: Sep 30, 2012

Objective:
1. Conduct multi-locus microsatellite genotyping for Las strains from HLB-affected planta and psyllid samples collected from various geographic locations. 2. Develop a comprehensive Las genotyping databases for identification and tracking the movement of Las isolates.

Approach:
1. PCR-based detection and fingerprinting and fragment analyses of asiaticus isolates. 2. Construct allele frequency of genotyping data and conduct phylogenetic analysis of U.S. Las populations.
