Research Project: Bacterial Endosymbionts of Psyllids

Location: Temperate Tree Fruit and Vegetable Research

Project Number: 2092-22430-002-37-S
Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Sep 15, 2018
End Date: Sep 30, 2021

Objective:
Investigate interactions between psyllids and bacterial plant pathogens and endosymbionts and improve monitoring and detection of pathogens and endosymbionts associated with psyllids.

Approach:
Diagnostic PCR, fluorescence in situ hybridization, and microscopy, in conjunction with greenhouse assays will be used to investigate interactions between psyllids and bacterial endosymbionts.
