Scientific project aiming at updating and validation of protocols on virus diagnosis and in vitro micro-propagation

IVV expertise: identification of virus/viroid diseases relevant for specific ornamental crops, set up of RT-PCR protocols and technology transfer to the flower growing industries, partners in the project.

Due Products: popular/ scientific publications on viral diseases of ornamental crops and molecular diagnostic protocols for their detection. Use and calibration of molecular detection technologies (RT-PCR) within plant health certification of propagation material. Organization of theoretical/hands-on classes for technicians of flower-growing industries and preparation of operating manuals listing virus/viroid detection procedures.
