Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: Genomics has changed the strategies used to manage insects and diseases. The ability to effect a change in proteins, and transcripts, through RNA-interference, RNAi, has produced a rush towards the development of the most state-of-the-art pest suppression strategies available. To rapidly advance these efforts, we established the International Psyllid Genome Consortium to bring together researchers interested in psyllid genomics.
