The primary emphasis of this program is the development of new diagnostic assays to provide laboratorybased tests for all the virus and virus-like agents that infect strawberry, raspberry, blackberry and blueberry. This program is coordinated with the other centers to implement the new tests into pathogen elimination and diagnostic programs. This center also works on the development of next-generation diagnostics that will allow the detection of all pathogens affecting the crops using a single assay.
