Following extensive training at the John Innes Centre, our visiting scientist Abel Debebe Mitiku will lead the deployment of the first real-time, mobile diagnostics platform for wheat yellow rust in Ethiopia this summer.
Based at the Ethiopian Institute of Agricultural Research, Abel is a plant-tech researcher, who has spent six months in my lab working on wheat rust, which is a major disease of wheat worldwide and also affects Ethiopian wheat crops.
