1. Identification and characterization of phages/prophages in “Ca. L. asiaticus” and S. citri through data-mining from available DNA sequences. 2. Selection and evaluation of candidate phage/prophage genes for their capacity in pathogen detection. 3. Testing the phage/prophage-based detection systems using clinical field insect and plant DNA samples.
