Braunschweig, 13th-17th May 2024

Scientists from agricultural research institutes focusing on plant virus diagnosis meet at the DSMZ to collectively work on plant diseases and viruses infecting plants, to share experience and advance knowledge and expertise in virus detection and diagnosis - from symptom evaluation, serological and molecular detection methods to advanced high throughput sequencing and bioinformatic analysis. It is the intention of the workshop to cover the broad range of tools and methods for virus diagnosis in light of the rapid technical progress in the field and the increasing challenges presented by novel pathogens and complex plant diseases.
