Featured Project

Improved identification and detection of select agent Ralstonia solanacearum strains threatening the US potato industry

The goal of this project is to develop a data-driven framework for improving the regulation and detection of Rs strains that threaten US agriculture.

The primary purpose of this project is to precisely circumscribe the authentically threatening Rs strains that are highly aggressive on potato at cool temperatures using a combination of phenotypic assays and bioinformatics to evaluate current diagnostic markers.
