IMPACT OF MOLECULARLY DIAGNOSE OF DISEASES IN SOME IMPORTANT FRUIT CROPS
The social and economic consequences of the failure to recognize contain or control threatening pathogens require that every effort can be made to engage in efficient and effective programs of surveillance, diagnosis and detection. The fact that threats are many and resources few points to the increasing importance of diagnostic networks that can rapidly and precisely identify causal organisms of disease as a crucial first step towards the deployment of control and mitigation strategies. This technology continues to evolve with pullthrough from human and veterinary disease diagnostics and it is hoped that more sensitive and specific devices are developed for a range of pathogens that can be deployed in the field. Where as detection refers to the identification of microorganisms or their products, e.g., toxins in any number of substrates including plant tissues, soil and water.
