Interpretive Summary: This is an introductory article for an ongoing Citrograph report on the research being done to combat Huanglongbing (HLB) or citrus greening disease. In subsequent issues, progress on this time-course study will be reported in this trade journal. Readers will be informed of Citrus Research Board-funded efforts to develop early, pre-symptomatic diagnostic methods for HLB as a result of this on-going interdisciplinary research team.

Technical Abstract: An extensive background on the biology of disease development is provided that can be used as a reference by readers. In addition, each participating laboratory briefly describes the diagnostic method they have developed and introduces their research team in their work on Huanglongbing (HLB), citrus greening disease.
