RE.GE.FRU.P – Minafra

SAFEGUARD OF APULIA FRUIT GERMPLASM

Objectives of the service activities will support diagnostic assessment for the presence of viruses and viroids in local fruit germplasm, undergone to sanitation techniques such as heat therapy, meristem tip culture and micrografting.

The techniques to be applied will be serological (ELISA) and molecular (RT-PCR in real time) tests.

Target viral pathogens for testing are those reported in national regulations for certification (DM 14/4/1997 e DM 20/11/2006).
