Slides from 2013 VVA meeting

Thank you very much for attending this year's VVA meeting!  I really enjoyed the meeting.  We had a lot of disease talks this year, but I think it was a good reminder/refresher for all of us.  As I promised, here are our handouts from the meeting.  Please click the link to download them.  As with the last year, I think the VVA will post them at their website too. 1) Taylor's Virus Presentation 2) Mizuho's Phomopsis/Ripe Rot/Bitter Rot Presentation
