Ralstonia solanacearum race 3 biovar 2

Upon completion of the Ralstonia solanacearum race 3 biovar 2 (R3bv2) module, learners will have achieved the following learning objectives:
  • Be familiar with signs and symptoms of R3bv2.
  • Know where to submit suspect R3bv2 samples.
  • Understand the communication protocols associated with R3bv2.
  • Be familar with R3bv2 status as a select agent.
  • Be familiar with management strategies for R3bv2 and other related organisms.
Educational and research objectives for the Ralstonia solanacearum race 3 biovar 2 (R3bv2) project include the following:
  • Develop rapid, robust, and reliable diagnostic assays for R3bv2, using both immunological and DNA-based approaches.
  • Identify R3bv2 genes involved in cold adaptation and growth in plant hosts, using a microarray-based postgenomic approach.
  • Develop a package of optimized educational and management module that will educate stakeholders to detect, exclude, and manage, the pathogen.
