A big day for the team! Our preprint is now available- Real time portable genome sequencing for global food security
‘For the first time globally, the MinION portable pocket DNA sequencer was used to sequence whole plant virus genomes. We used this technology to identify the begomoviruses causing the devastating CMD which is ravaging smallholder farmers crops in sub-Saharan Africa.’
Bleeding edge technology- East African scientists leading the charge to help farmers.
