Learn how NGS can help mitigate the spread of disease



The US horticulture industry suffers approximately $60 billion in losses each year as a result of viral pathogens. Detection of viruses is a critical priority to mitigate the spread of diseases that threaten plant health, fruit yield and quality and the industry economic bottom line. During this webinar learn how NuPhY has been evaluating various approaches to develop broad-spectrum, high-throughput virus screening in horticultural crops.

Learning objectives:

  • Gain an understanding of the challenges facing the US horticulture industry.
  • Understand the limitations of many common existing technologies for virus screening of horticultural crops.
  • Understand how new genomic technologies like NGS can be applied in a high-throughput manner to screen horticultural crops.
