Microarrays have emerged as an important tool in identifying changes in gene expression under different conditions, including plant responses to pathogen infection.
A logical extension of the technology is the detection of the pathogen itself, and a number of laboratories have developed either macroarrays or microarrays capable of detection and differentiation of the viruses known to infect a specific crop.
Microarrays, broad spectrum PCR, Real-time PCR, and other methods of detecting multiple viruses are discussed.
