The mission was simple but large: sample 250 varieties of yams in the field in Guadeloupe, to be distributed in 500 plastic bags, then sent to Charlotte for the famous "viral particles" protocol.

The team (Rose-Marie, David, Lydiane, Marie, Nadia, Eric 1 and Eric 2 ) was on the field at sunrise. It was early, rainy, muddy, but successful ! The material was collected from the field plots of the BRC Tropical Plants.

Half of the material will be used in Montpellier for extractions of the viral particles, and kept in the famous freezer (private joke). The other part is dedicated to dsRNA extraction and cDNA synthesis.

Thanks to everybody ! (and special thanks to Dominique Denon for the pictures in the field).
