Citation

Names
Ca. Liberibacter asiaticus Liberibacter
Abstract
Huanglongbing (HLB) is a devastating disease of citrus and threatens the citrus industry worldwide. The suspected causal agent of the disease is a phloem-limited bacterium of the genus Candidatus Liberibacter transmitted through insect vector or grafting with diseased budwood. Currently, most seed source trees for citrus rootstock propagation are located outdoors and unprotected from disease transmission. In addition, fruit from HLB-affected scion varieties in Florida containing seeds enter the

Confirmation of the Sequence of ‘Candidatus Liberibacter asiaticus’ and Assessment of Microbial Diversity in Huanglongbing-Infected Citrus Phloem Using a Metagenomic Approach

Abstract
The citrus disease Huanglongbing (HLB) is highly destructive in many citrus-growing regions of the world. The putative causal agent of this disease, ‘Candidatus Liberibacter asiaticus’, is difficult to culture, and Koch's postulates have not yet been fulfilled. As a result, efforts have focused on obtaining the genome sequence of ‘Ca. L. asiaticus’ in order to give insight on the physiology of this organism. In this work, three next-generation high-throughput sequencing platforms, 454, Solexa,
