TRAINING ON MOLECULAR DETECTION OF PLANT VIRUSES HELD ON 23rd SEPTEMBER TO 6TH OCTOBER AT MIKOCHENI AGRICULTURAL RESEARCH INSTITUTE DAR ES SALAAM - TANZANIA.

on Monday, September 23, 2013
Molecular detections of Plant viruses training held from september 23rd - 06th October, 2013 at Mikocheni agricultural research institute, the aim of this training was to train Lab Technicians on the latest techniques for tracking different viruses in Plant tissues as the infections unfolds. The trainees were coming from different countries (Zambia,Malawi,Rwanda, Kenya, Burundi and Tanzania as a host.
Its time to go back!!!!
