  "description": "<p>The EU directive 2006/63/EC describes a detailed protocol for the official testing of <em>Ralstonia solanacearum</em>, that is internationally recognized and has been implemented in many diagnostic laboratories across Europe and beyond. In this protocol, the confirmation of the identity of the bacterium is performed by a laborious, time-consuming and expensive pathogenicity test. Additionally, the described protocols involved in the official testing of <em>Ralstonia solanacearum</em> (for detection and/or identification) require a lot of time, a high level of quarantine measures, and a high degree of expertise. The aim of this project was to develop, and evaluate molecular diagnostic methods for the detection and identification of <em>Ralstonia solanacearum</em> and verification of its virulence that would be faster, more specific and robust. Based on the current taxonomic insights, the high degree of heterogenity present inside the <em>Ralstonia solanacearum</em> species complex (RSSC) has resulted in the clear distinction of three new species inside this complex; the requirement defined in this Euphresco project was that the new molecular tests could be optimally implemented for the detection and identification of <em>Ralstonia solanacearum</em> and <em>Ralstonia pseudosolanacearu</em>m, but not of <em>Ralstonia syzygii</em>.</p>\n\n<p>The two main objectives of the project were:</p>\n\n<p>1) To identify <em>Ralstonia solanacearum </em>virulence genes, and subsequently develop a PCR test on those virulence genes. The development of such a test could substitute the pathogenicity test required by EU directive 2006/63/EC for complete diagnosis of <em>Ralstonia solanacearum</em>.</p>\n\n<p>2) To verify other molecular methods to detect or identify <em>Ralstonia solanacearum </em>strains. These methods include the real-time Loop-mediated isothermal amplication test (LAMP) and the recombinase-polymerase amplification assay (RPA).</p>",
