This project aims to evaluate and develop a high-throughput sequencing-based diagnostic procedure to
This innovative diagnostic approach will significantly contribute to the development and adoption of diagnostic methods that rely on high-throughput sequencing, thereby simplifying the diagnosis process.
From 2019 to 2023
DNA sequencing can be used to inventory all the organisms living in a soil sample.
