We are experts in plant viruses and the use of new biotechnology tools for crop breeding.More about Abiopep
Abiopep has used high throughput sequencing technologies to detect viruses in a collection of tomato samples showing symptoms of undetermined cause. One of the identified viruses was Tomato fruit blotch virus (ToFBV). ToFBV was reported recently from Australia and Italy associated to fruit blotching and uneven ripening of tomato fruits.
Abiopep develops an ELISA test based on monoclonal antibodies which are capable of identifying ToBRFV and discriminate it from other closely related viruses, unlike other commercially available tests.
