Project description

Our part of the project aims - To obtain or produce relevant vauchered DNA sequence data for Clavibacter michiganesis pathovars (core genes and accessory genes) and position them in a correct taxonomic context. - Developing generic diagnostic tools based on these barcode sequences - Develop strategic approaches and methodologies to enable the establishment of DNA banks and access to digital voucher specimens - Enhance collaboration between EU and third country diagnostic laboratories
