Interpretive Summary: Xylella fastidiosa is a vector-borne plant vascular pathogen which has caused devastating disease outbreaks in diverse agricultural crops worldwide. A major global quarantine pathogen, X. fastidiosa can infect hundreds of plant species and can be transmitted by many different xylem-feeding insects. Several decades of research have revealed a complex lifestyle dependent on adaptation to the xylem environment and interactions with host plant tissues.
