Molecular Pathogen Diagnostics

CGIAR centers have played a significant role in the development and application of molecular tools for the characterization, detection and diagnosis of disease causing agents. Molecular diagnostics programs focus has been generally on developing tools and technologies for better understanding of disease ecology, diagnosis and monitoring of biological systems to prevent trans-boundary spread of pests and pathogens, and their negative impacts on plant health, crop production and quality of the produce.

Greater emphasizes has been on the development of simple and accurate tools and procedures for rapid diagnosis of pathogens and pests of the food and horticultural crops in sub-Saharan Africa
