Topic:″Say Goodbye to Citrus? An Ancient Virus-Like RNA That May Be the Only Hope of Saving the Worldwide Citrus Industry from Citrus Greening (Huanglongbing) Disease″
Abstract: Effective treatment for HLB-diseased trees and protection of uninfected trees will likely require virus vectors that can deposit anti-bacterial and anti-phyllid (the insect that transmits the bacteria to the tree) substances directly into the phloem (veins) of trees where the bacteria live and the insects feed. We have discovered a novel virus-like agent that can accumulate to high levels in the phloem of virtually all citrus, generates few if any symptoms, and should be capable of producing copious amounts of anti-HLB (and anti-Citrus tristeza virus) substances where they are needed.

        Interested teachers and students are welcome to attend. Sincerely thank you!
