The Candidatus Liberibacter Culturing Consortium CLCC Approach

Our experimental approach

The CLCC Project utilizes a multidisciplinary approach to

  1. Identify how metabolism in CLas is organized and functions
  2. Identify what CLas obtains from its hosts that enables it to live within their bodies
  3. Identify what the microenvironment is like within the host bodies where CLas grows and replicates
  4. Identify what conditions will be required to culture CLas in vitro
  5. Ultimately culture CLas in vitro, either in planktonic culture or in biofilms
