Caption: Plant health check. Chemist (centre), microbiologist (left), and technician (background) reviewing results of a 'dot blot' assay for potato spindle tuber viroid (PSTVd). These assays provide sensitive, rapid detection of infected plants and identify any viroids present. Viroids are plant pathogens that consist of a short section of circular, single-stranded RNA (ribonucleic acid) without the protein coat that is typical of viruses. PSTVd is a serious agricultural pest that can infect all forms of potato and tomato plants.
