Abstract :With the renewal of staff of the Plant Pathology Laboratory of the University of the Ryukyus, Okinawa, Japan in 2016, plant protection in Okinawa entered a new era. Before then, fungi, oomycete, bacteria, and nematodes were the target pathogens of our research. Since 2016, virus has been added to the list of the research targets. The diagnostic ability of the laboratory has substantially improved with the availability of new molecular biological facilities and a greenhouse that is maintained for the cultivation of tropical crops. As a result, when new diseases emerged in Okinawa, their causal agents were rapidly identified in a few years’ time. Crop protection is one of the most important factors in the promotion of local agriculture in Okinawa. Now, we can contribute to governmental plant protection organizations in Okinawa by identifying new pathogens and educating young plant pathologists, especially in the diagnosis of plant diseases. Additionally, collaboration with governmental organizations and local commercial companies related to plant protection would provide educational benefits to the students of the University of the Ryukyus. Here, we introduce the current status of the Plant Pathology Laboratory in the University of the Ryukyus and discuss its prospects in becoming the center of the Okinawa plant protection community.
