The threat of bacterial diseases
Bacteria do not recognize borders and the globalization of the current world, together with the possible effects of climate change, confront phytopathology to the challenge of new emerging diseases. The basic principle for the control of bacteria diseases is the adoption of effective measures to prevent the spread of pathogens and the development of diseases. For this it is essential to have detection and identification methods that are quick, sensitive and specific. The increasing availability of genome sequences will allow the design of PCR primers specific to unique regions of a given bacterial species. In any case, detection techniques continue to encounter an important obstacle, which is that of latent infections and asymptomatic plants. Read more (In Spanish) in the document and the attached link.
