First detected in Europe in 2013, Xylella fastidiosa is one of the most dangerous plant bacteria worldwide, transmitting diseases to crops and trees. LIFE RESILIENCE is developing genotypes of pathogen-resistant plants to prevent the bacteria’s negative impacts.
The team is taking part in the 3rd European Conference on X fastidiosa on 29 and 30 April. The event is being organised jointly by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and the Horizon 2020 project XF-ACTORS.
The online meeting will take stock of all research carried out since Xylella fastidiosa first appeared in Europe nearly ten years ago.
