KASP technology accelerates rice improvement in South Asia
Global rice production is increasing but there is diversity in productivity across Asia, with some regions suffering yield losses from disease, adverse weather and insufficient irrigation.There is opportunity for breeders to improve both abiotic and biotic stress response with an optimised approach for their varieties in the region.
[Panel discussion] How to establish COVID-19 diagnostics and keep up with demand
To get a grip on this COVID-19 outbreak and flatten the curve of infection, extensive diagnostic testing is crucial. With the rapid increase in testing volume and the subsequent shortages on tests and components, ensuring adequate COVID-19 diagnostics has presented a real-life challenge for laboratories.
Rapid Response to the Coronavirus Outbreak: How Collaboration Meets the Challenge
As the outbreak of 2019 Novel Coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, makes headlines on a daily basis, molecular diagnostic firms are rapidly responding by developing tests that assist in diagnosing the disease and support outbreak control.
