  • A multidisciplinary team led by researchers from The Francis Crick Institute and including University College Dublin, Public Health England, The Animal and Plant Health Agency and the Royal Veterinary College (RVC) has shed new light on how the bacteria that cause tuberculosis (TB) in humans and animals manipulate the host immune system to cause disease. […]
  • A study led by researchers at Kansas State University aimed to identify gut microbiome characteristics associated with improved outcome in pigs immunized against porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV), after co-infection with PRRSV and porcine circovirus type 2 (PCV2). “Our latest work is focused on how the gut microbiome impacts the response of growing […]
  • A review by scientists from the Roslin Institute, published in Porcine Health Management, suggests that gene editing tools could offer opportunities to curb swine influenza A virus on farms. Gene editing technologies could be used to precisely alter genes in pigs that influenza viruses use to establish infection, as has been done to tackle other […]
