'Candidatus Phytoplasma', a taxon for the wall-less, non-helical prokaryotes that colonize plant phloem and insects.
The trivial name 'phytoplasma' has been adopted to collectively name wall-less, non-helical prokaryotes that colonize plant phloem and insects, which were formerly known as mycoplasma-like organisms.Expand

Genetic variation in Candidatus Phytoplasma australiense
This study examined whether genes that are less conserved than the 16S rRNA gene can distinguish Candidatus Phytoplasma australiense strains that are identical based on their 16S rRNA genes, with aExpand
