Goal: In order to gain higher resolution in X. compactus fungus community, more isolates need to be genotyped to confirm whether morphotypes are consistent with one or multiple Fusarium species.
-Isolate fungi from 15 beetles in Gainesville caught from 3 locations.
-Perform quick RAPD to determine morphotype consistency.
-Send 5 isolates per morphotype isolated from different beetles to Kerry.
-Update CFU, isolation, and PCA data for paper.
-Use fungus identifications to begin pathogenicity experiment.
