Nucleic acid-based methods for on-site detection of plant pathogens : approaches and applications
Tomlinson, Jennifer A. (2012) Nucleic acid-based methods for on-site detection of plant pathogens : approaches and applications. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
The ability to perform nucleic acid-based detection of plant pathogens away from conventional laboratory facilities has the potential to be beneficial in situations where results are required very rapidly or where resources and access to laboratory equipment are limited. Methods for use in such situations must combine sensitivity and specificity with rapid and simple workflows. The aim of this project was to investigate aspects of on-site testing for plant pathogens by developing detection methods for a range of target species.
