"Casi 800 millones de personas en todo el mundo dependen de la yuca para sobrevivir, pero esta fuente fundamental de alimentos está siendo atacada por virus totalmente prevenibles" dice la bióloga computacional, y becaria anterior de TED, Laura Boykin. Nos lleva hasta las granjas del este de África donde trabaja con un equipo heterogéneo de científicos para ayudar a los agricultores a mantener sus cultivos saludables usando un laboratorio portátil de ADN y una mini supercomputadora capaz de identificar virus en horas, en lugar de en meses.

À peu près 800 millions de personnes dans le monde dépendent du manioc pour survivre -- mais le manioc est la cible de plusieurs virus et pathogènes qu'on peut combattre selon Laura Boykin, bio-informaticienne et TED Fellow. Elle nous amène aux fermes d'Afrique de l'Est où elle travaille avec une équipe de scientifiques diversifiée et inclusive. Ils travaillent pour garder les cultures des fermiers en santé en utilisant un lab d'ADN portable et un mini superordinateur qui peut identifier des virus en quelques heures au lieu de mois.
