Featured Project

Genome-based circumscription and phenotyping of regulated microbes, especially the select agent Ralstonia solanacearum

Rapid and precise identification of putative bacterial pathogens is critically important in protecting U.S. agriculture.​ This project leverages genome sequencing and genome-based classification to precisely identify select agents and other high risk quarantine pathogens and conclusively distinguish them from non-pathogens and closely related pathogens already present in the United States. While the experimental work is focused on Ralstonia solanacearum (Rs), the employed genome sequence-based approach is expandable to other bacterial pathogens.
