Viruses and viroids

Viruses and viroids

At Normec Green Agro Control, we are dedicated to ensuring the health and safety of crops and food products. Viruses and viroids threaten consumer health and crop yields.

Research on viruses and viroids requires a multidisciplinary approach and may vary based on the specific goal of the study. In conducting research on viruses and viroids, we use Molecular techniques such as PCR, RT-PCR (reverse-transcriptase PCR), DNA sequencing to detect, identify and characterize viruses and viroids. These techniques help in studying genome structure, replication mechanisms and diversity of viruses.

Viruses and viroids in brief
  • Use of advanced molecular techniques such as PCR and DNA sequencing
  • Detection, identification and characterisation of viruses and viroids
