Abstract
Potato production in the US is being challenged by the introduction of a devastating new disease, the Zebra Chip (ZC) caused by a bacterium vectored by the potato psyllid.Here we propose the development of a handheld nanosensory ZebraChip detection system that is an easy to use, reliable bionanosensory system for the instantaneous detection of the ZC bacterium in the field. The proposed handheld nanosensory ZebraChip detection system will provide very early detection the ZC bacterium which might result in the development of more efficient ZC management leading to the containment, control and even prevention of the spread of ZC in planted areas.
