Molecular Diagnosis and Diversity for Regulated Xanthomonas

This data is based on the review by Catara et al. (2021), focused on the molecular methods for diagnosis, detection, and studies on the diversity of plant pathogenic Xanthomonas, concentrating especially on regulated pathogens in the European Union published as a collective effort of the Working Group 1 'Diagnostics & Diversity–Population Structure' from the EuroXanth COST Action CA16107.

Specifically, we provide information on:

Other resources:

LINbase - The Life Identification Number® (LIN® ) Platform (Tian et al., 2020)

MLVAbank - A genotyping resource for tandem repeat typing (MLVA for Multiple Loci VNTR analysis), CRISPR typing (CRISPR for Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats), sequence typing (MLST for Multiple Loci Sequence Typing) and Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNP) (e.g., Xanthomonas fragariae) (Grissa et al., 2008)

PAMDB - A multilocus sequence typing and analysis (MLST/MLSA) website and database specifically designed for identification of plant associated and environmental microbes and for the study of their epidemiology, population genetics, and molecular evolution (Almeida et al., 2010)

PhytoBacExplorer - Online resource for analysing and visualising genomic variation within plant-pathogenic bacteria

PubMLST - A collection of open-access, curated databases that integrate population sequence data (e.g., Xanthomonas citri, Xylella fastidiosa) (Jolley et al., 2018)
