Investigate interactions between psyllids and bacterial plant pathogens and endosymbionts and improve monitoring and detection of pathogens and endosymbionts associated with psyllids.
Diagnostic PCR, fluorescence in situ hybridization, and microscopy, in conjunction with greenhouse assays will be used to investigate interactions between psyllids and bacterial endosymbionts.
