Fast and efficient detection of potential pathogens or pests is critical in ensuring a healthy growth of crops. The Netherlands is an important worldwide producer of plant propagation material. A very rapidly emerging innovative group of technologies, collectively called Next Generation Sequencing (NGS), offers an excellent tool for an early detection of microorganisms. The consortium sets out to work together to achieve standardization of the NGS methods and validation of NGS-based tests. GenomeScan proudly takes part in this initiative.
