“Airborne crop diseases are responsible for devastating loss of yield and over-reliance on pesticides. Current detection regimes often rely on expert identification of the pathogen from plant damage. Together with collaborators, we have developed Air-seq, a new approach that seeks to identify pathogens through sequencing of biological material present in the air.”
