Estudio muestra que las algas marinas podrían ser una solución para devastadora enfermedad del kiwi (en inglés)
Two University of Waikato students believe marine algae could hold the key to controlling a disease that has devastated New Zealand’s kiwifruit industry.
Claire Voogt and Taylor Farr are both studying for a Master of Science and are investigating how the natural metabolites from algae can be used to treat pathogenic bacteria, particularly Psa, which cost the kiwifruit industry an estimated $1 billion in exports when it was discovered on a vine in 2010.
The pair are this years recipients of the Sir Don Llewellyn Fieldays Postgraduate Scholarship where the $22,500 prize is split between them.
