    This is an interesting activity to be trained and work correctly to identify Xanthomonadaceaes and specific strains. Personally, I am very interested to participate. I am involved in a Xanthomonas program in tomato and pepper crops in Guatemala, Central America.

    Congratulation to organize this spectacular activity.
