Using Clay Nanosheets to Give Plants Sustained RNAi-based Protection from Viruses – LEGUME LABORATORY

RNAi, or RNA interference, is the protective process used in many eukaryotic cells against viruses which uses double stranded RNA (“dsRNA”) sequences complementary to that of a pathogen to silence the translation of that … Continue reading Using Clay Nanosheets to Give Plants Sustained RNAi-based Protection from Viruses – LEGUME LABORATORY
