The vision of the CRCNPB post-entry quarantine (PEQ) project is to develop advanced molecular diagnostic methods for the detection of plant viruses that can be expediently applied in both a PEQ (import) and a market access (export) context. In phase I of this project (18 months duration), the project team; i) conducted a review of the importation processes of cereals into Australia and New Zealand, ii) designed and validated molecular tests that target groups of plant viruses that pose a threat to the grain’s industry and iii) investigated the application of Flinders Technology Associates (FTA) card technologies for rapid and safe collection and storage of plant virus samples and viral ribonucleic acid (RNA).
