Xylella fastidiosa evolution, determinants of host plant specificity, and pathogen adaptation to novel hosts

Text - scientific article/review article


Despite the global importance of the bacterium Xylella fastidiosa, there is limited understanding of what determines its host specificity, and how this pathogen adapts to new host plant species. Analyses of genomic data for X. fastidiosa populations in the USA and Europe will be presented as case studies, and hypotheses generated based on these datasets discussed.
