Title: Fast, simple and economical system for monitoring the physiological status of crops in the field
Research Group: Non-Coding RNA-Mediated Regulatory Networks
Consequently, the development of an innovative, inexpensive and easy-to-interpret personal diagnostic device that enable farmers to detect plant-damage biomarkers, would represent an immense benefit in crop production by limiting economic losses related to adverse environmental conditions. In this project we address the development of ultra-sensitive sensors (based on microfluidic paper analytical devices technology) for the early, easy, and low-cost detection of the damage induced by pests, pathogens and other stress conditions in crops.
