We're building affordable diagnostics for crop and livestock viruses using advances in cell-free synthetic biology.


The spread of agricultural viruses across the developing world is a threat to farmers' livelihoods and global food security. Eradication of these diseases is often impossible and so the ability to monitor and control outbreaks is critical. Farmers need low-cost diagnostics to help them do this, and advances in synthetic biology will make this possible.
