    , during the spring season of 2007 were examined for phytoplasmal infections with PCR assays using universal phytoplasma primers directed to rDNA sequences. All symptomatic plants examined tested positive. By sequence analysis of the amplified 16S rDNA and 16S/23S rDNA spacer region sequences, the detected phytoplasma proved to be a strain of 'Candidatus Phytoplasma cynodontisphytoplasma cynodontisSubject Category: Organism Names

    ', the causal agent of Bermuda grass white leaf disease. A yellows disease of Bermuda grass was already known to occur in India. However, molecular detection and characterization of the presumable causal agent had previously not been reported.
