Xylella fastidiosa is the casual bacterium of Citrus Variegated Chlorosis (CVC), one of the most severe disease in Brazilian citriculture. With the genome sequencing of CVC X. fastidiosa, putative virulence determinants will be identified, but for their evaluation, it is necessary to develop systems for genetic manipulation of this microorganism. The purpose of our project is to identif...
Xylella fastidiosa is the causal agent of citrus variegated chlorosis (CVC). The genome of the CVC strain 9a5c was sequenced and revealed several genes and mechanisms potentially involved in X. fastidiosa phytopathogenicity such as exopolysaccharide production, toxins and cell wall degradation. Recently, transformation of several CVC strain was obtained by Monteiro and co-workers with a...
