Shirima shows the trainees how to detect cassava brown streak viruses (CBSVs) using real time PCR
The second training was conducted for the staff of the Molecular Biology Laboratory at the hub and was conducted by Rudolph Shirima, a research associate under the Virology and Vector Ecology department of IITA Eastern Africa Hub.

The training was organized by IITA under the auspices of the Cassava Varieties and Clean Seed to combat CBSD and CMD (5CP) project. Its objective was to equip the trainees with the knowledge and skills to operate and use real-time PCR to diagnose viruses in cassava. The training also covered sample collection and management for diagnostics.
