Learning Objectives

This section wraps up our learning by providing information about detecting the presence of Oomycete species at the molecular level.

After this lesson you should be able to answer the following questions…

  • How are pathologists improving DNA testing to identify Oomycete species from a soil or plant sample?
  • What is isothermal PCR and how might this become an “in the field” tool for agronomists to use and help farmers protect their yield?
