Oct 2019   International Symposium: Advanced research for insect viruses
In this symposium the advance studies for insect viruses in China and Japan will be discussed. This symposium was supported by Sakura Science Plan (Sakura Science Exchange program) from Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST).
Oct 2017   International Symposium: Status and control strategy of a novel biotype of Oryctes rhinoceros that has emerged in the Pacific Ocean and is resistant to a nudivirus
The coconut rhinoceros beetle (CRB), Oryctes rhinoceros is a major pest of coconut palm, oil palm and other palm species. Palms are damaged when adult beetles bore into the crowns of palms to feed on sap, with severe damage able to kill palms. CRB is believed to have evolved in South East Asia, but was accidentally introduced into Samoa in 1908, where it subsequently spread to other the Pacific Islands and caused widespread damage and death to palms. Arising from an UNDP/SPC CRB control project in the 1960s, the discovery of Oryctes rhinoceros nudivirus (OrNV) coupled with sanitation enabled the successful management of populations in Pacific Island Countries. For over 30 years, no new outbreaks of CRB were reported from uninfested palm growing islands in the Pacific; however, CRB has now been detected for the first time in several Pacific Island locations including: Guam (2007); Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea (2009); Oahu, Hawaii (2013); and Honiara, Solomon Islands (2015). A new CRB biotype (CRB- G) was shown to have invaded these areas and results from Guam indicate CRB-G is more resistant to OrNV than the previously invading CRB.
