Predictive models, based upon epidemiological principles and fitted to surveillance data, play an increasingly important role in shaping regulatory and operational policies for emerging outbreaks. Data for parameterising these strategically important models are often scarce when rapid actions are required to change the course of an epidemic invadin...

In October 2015, a Mexican lime exhibiting citrus canker symptoms was found by the USDA APHIS PPQ in a residential property in Rancho Viejo, Cameron County, Texas. Real-time PCR analysis detected the presence of Xanthomonas citri subsp. citri; USDA APHIS PPQ in Beltsville, MD confirmed this diagnosis. A delimiting survey was initiated and suspect l...
