    Description

    Diagnostics used by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), to determine absence or presence of Phytophthora ramorum in plant samples, are based on a combination of tests and depend on collaboration with external laboratories. The system currently in place attempts to maximize limited resources and at the same time provide the most scientifically defensible, accurate, and rapid diagnostics available. Described here is an overview of the current system, followed by a discussion of future plans.
