Abstract

On 24 March 2017, the German authorities reported the contamination of a 'do-it-yourself' bacterial gene engineering CRISPR kit produced in the USA. The kit was contaminated with pathogenic bacteria (risk group 2), including some bacteria that are multidrug-resistant and extended spectrum...

Abstract

This study analyses pig breeding operations and the demands of smallholder pig producers in Nghe An province of northcentral Vietnam, a province that has developed rapidly over the last decade. The study was highly participatory in nature, involving a large range of stakeholders. Specifically, it...

Abstract

A commercial molecular assay based on loop-mediated isothermal amplification (TB-LAMP) was developed by Eiken Chemical Company Ltd (Tokyo, Japan) for the detection of Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex (MTBC). TB-LAMP has minimal laboratory infrastructure and biosafety requirements, and has been...

Abstract

This study was conducted to characterize and quantify the genetic diversity of native sandalwood (Santalum yasi) in Fiji and Tonga for use in future tree improvement and germplasm conservation programs. This was achieved by surveying planted and wild populations of natural and introduced sandalwood ...

Abstract

The project focussed on demonstrating the technical feasibility of using DNA markers to prove provenance of teak timber from Indonesia, and explored the process by which the use of DNA markers could be used to verify legality of Indonesian teak timber products, grown by smallholder farmers.
