The glassy-winged sharpshooter (GWSS; Homalodisca vitripennis) is an efficient vector of Xylella fastidiosa (Xf), causal agent of Pierce’s disease of grapevines. We are investigating using recombinant insect viruses to deliver toxic peptides and/or induce systemic RNA interference (RNAi) and thereby induce mortality in recipient GWSS. We are attempting to develop recombinant Homalodisca coagulata virus-1 (HoCV-1) so as to specifically infect GWSS. We will engineer HoCV1 to deliver and express… Expand
