Plant pathogens and diseases

Sometimes your crop may show disease related problems which are difficult to trace down. Spadix can help you in finding the pathogen(s) causing this disease. To do this we use either 16S/ITS profiling or a more thorough Next generation Sequencing approach in combination with bio-informatics. These approaches can also be used for species level identification of unknown bacteria and fungi that are grown on agar plates. Next to this we offer help in designing molecular markers to help you to perform this determination in your own labs and facilities.

We offer this service for different crops on seeds and plants like vegetables, ornamentals, fruits and field crops.
