Punctuation in listing

0

Grammarly advises to place a semicolon rather than a comma between ...laboratory and undertaking...

As the sentences is meant to be a listing I believe a comma is correct here.

Thanks

The software is reading this as a compound sentence. Remember, it's just software and can't think. You are correct, but I would also put a comma after 'disciplines'.
