Date: 16 March 2021
Title: European P. infestans monitoring initiative - Results from 2020 and campaign in 2021.
Responsible: David Cooke, Geert Kessel and Jens G. Hansen
Discussion points: Results of genotyping 2020 and sampling campaign 2021. How to manage and maintain shared facilities and services e.g. Smartphone App for surveillance and monitoring (sampling), SSR genotyping at JHI, databases for storage, analysis and display of data at AU, access to live isolates at WUR. How can we establish a research infrastructure to be prepared for emerging threats?
Contact: David Cook, James Hutton Institute
