Start date
2019
End date
2021
Objective
Transgenic strategies for controlling huanglongbing (HLB) and its psyllid vector will be tested in a secure environment in which ideal care is provided for the invaluable research material in full compliance with regulatory requirements. Non-transgenic citrus with reasonable probability of resistance, will be tested and may provide tolerant or resistant planting materials with fewer regulatory constraints. This care will be provided with no compromise to the research teams' ownership of tested intellectual property and no USDA/ARS expectation of inclusion in the related patents secured when USDA/ARS was not involved in development of the plant materials, expression vectors or other material tested.
