Estudos com vetores de Xylella fastidiosa
e implicacoes no manejo da clorose variegada dos citros.
Two Xylella fastidiosa
genotypes associated with almond leaf scorch on the same location in California.
Developing a method to detect Xylella fastidiosa
in the glassy-winged sharpshooter.
While several researchers have worked to transform cultivars genetically so that vines will produce a protein that will stop the spread of Xylella fastidiosa
once it is introduced, Walker took a different tack at UC Davis and used breeding techniques to gradually develop vinifera cultivars that are resistant to PD.

Causal role of Xylella fastidiosa
in oleander leaf scorch disease.
When it shoves its tubelike mouthparts into a plant to suck sap from the xylem, the insect may transmit a deadly plant bacterium, Xylella fastidiosa
, in its saliva.
Assays for grapevine viruses phytoplasmas and Xylella fastidiosa
failed to detect a causal agent.
Sharpshooter infestations in Florida citrus are a concern due to potential introduction of citrus variegated chlorosis (CVC), a serious disease of citrus caused by a strain of the bacterium Xylella fastidiosa
Wells et al.
Labex and the ARS Office of International Research Programs have also helped foster an important collaboration between ARS and Brazil's Sao Paulo State Research Foundation to successfully sequence the genome of the bacterium Xylella fastidiosa
, strains of which cause Pierce's disease, a major U.S.
