Pop-Vir

Virus detection in poplar clones

In collaboration with the Research Unit for Intensive Wood Production of the CRA we are indexing cuttings and mother plants of selected poplar clones for known poplar viruses, mainly Poplar mosaic virus. In addition, we are using different experimental approaches aimed to the isolation of new viruses and virus-like pathogens in poplar and other biomass crops.
