PaDIL workshop – 2 October 2014

The Pest and Disease Image Library (PaDIL) is a publicly available online database that provides over 10,000 diagnostic images and information on insects, pathogens and weed species. PaDIL is an important resource for Australian and New Zealand biosecurity as it provides information on pests and pathogens that are exotic to these countries as well as native insect and pathogen species.

PBCRC has been asked to develop a business plan for the long-term development of PaDIL and its components, taking into account the current and potential national and international biosecurity environment. In developing this business plan PBCRC is consulting widely with current and prospective users of PaDIL.

A PaDIL workshop will be held on 2 October 2014 after the Australian Entomological Society Scientific meeting in Canberra. This workshop will focus on the existing and potential roles for PaDIL and options for ongoing support and development. If you are interested in attending the workshop, please register your interest (by 18 September 2014).
