Xanthomonas arboricola pv. juglandis (Xaj) is the causal agent of bacterial blight of walnut, an emerging disease, which has the potential to severely affect walnut orchards. An Italian strain collection of Xaj, obtained during the past 3 years from affected orchards in Romagna, was first assayed with conventional PCR with XajF/XajR primer pair developed to confirm strain identity. The population structure of the collection of Xaj isolates, confirms the presence of different genetic groups identified by rep-PCR (using Italian collection are currently being analysed by MLSA (multi locus sequence analysis), using 7 primers for 7 different housekeeping genes, with the purpose to better characterise the Italian isolates for phylotyping. The study of copper resistance on a wide collection of over 150 Xaj strains frequently showed high resistance (up to 500 ppm Cu++): two strains have been further studied confirming the presence of chromosomal genes copA and copB involved in the general copABCD copper resistance structure, as described for Pseudomonas syringae. Sequencing and comparing with other Xanthomonads were done. The elucidation of Xaj population structure may help to deeper investigate some additional aspects of the molecular epidemiology of the disease, thus allowing a better control strategy in the field. the REP, BOX and ERIC primers) and by multilocus sequence typing (MLST) and multilocus variable number analysis of tandem repeat (MLVA). Xaj and Xaj-like bacterial isolates from the
