Gatsby Plant Science Summer School

July 2018

Andrea co-organised the plant pathology practical at this year's Gatsby Plant Science Summer School held at The Hawkhills, Easingwold. The practical was about ash dieback, and included how to recognise the symptoms, microscopic analysis of samples taken from the field, and confirmation of infections using Loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP). The practical was great fun, and we hope to do it all again next year!
