A primary focus of the National Response Plan, established by multiple state, federal and tribal agencies in 2011, was the identification of biological control options for WNS. In an effort to identify potential biological control options for WNS, multiply induced Rhodococcus rhodochrous strain DAP96253 was screened for anti-P. destructans activity.
