WEBINAR ON CITRUS GREENING (HLB) DIAGNOSTICS AND DETECTION
August 24, 2017

AGENDA

10:00 Welcome, Introductions, and Overview of Webinar Agenda
Jacque Fletcher, Committee Chair; Webinar Participants

PART I – SPEAKER PRESENTATIONS
Note: AGENDA FOR PART I MAY BE SUBJECT TO CHANGE
10:10 Greg McCollum, US Horticultural Research Laboratory, USDA-ARS
10:40 Q&A
10:50 Tim Gottwald, US Horticultural Research Laboratory, USDA-ARS (HLB detection using canines)
11:00 Sindhuja Sankaran, Washington State University/Reza Ehsani, UC Merced (HLB detection using optical sensors)
11:10 Cristina Davis, UC Davis (HLB detection using VOCs)
11:20 Carolyn Slupsky, UC Davis (HLB detection using plant metabolites)

Invited speakers are requested to use the questions below as guide for their presentations; each speaker is requested to represent and present the overall state of HLB diagnostics- and detection- related research on his/her assigned topic, to include not only his/her own work but also that of others working in that research area(s) so that the committee will gain an understanding of each of these critical areas of research. Speakers may use PowerPoint slides during their talks.

1. In general, what have been the major research accomplishments, over the past 10 years, by your own research group as well as other groups, in the area about which you are speaking?
2. What research results/outcomes generated by the research community have been useful to ACP or HLB control, and how?
3. What are the important current research efforts in these areas?
4. To what extent are research collaborations and shared resources contributing to the progress and success of these projects?
5. (If applicable) What is slowing down the translational aspects of this area of research?
6. What other information/research is needed in the future to come up with better strategies for diagnosing/detecting HLB, and therefore controlling HLB?

PART II – DISCUSSION
Discussants: All invited speakers, committee members, invited experts in HLB diagnostics and detection, and registered participants.

11:30 Discussion Guidelines
Jacque Fletcher, Committee Chair

11:45 Discussion
o Experiences and insights from work on HLB diagnostics and detection
o Possible ways to overcome the current challenges in this area of research
o Approaches or techniques that are worth exploring

12:45 Closing Remarks/Adjourn Webinar
