  • Experimental Porcine deltacoronavirus (PDCoV) infection and subsequent transmission among poultry is reported in Emerging Infectious Diseases. The Ohio State University researchers who led this work were part of a team that previously found in a laboratory setting that the virus could infect cells from multiple species, including chickens and humans. In the latest study, birds […]
  • Research from The Pirbright Institute has shown that different populations of Foot-and-mouth disease virus (FMDV) swap sections of genetic material at a far higher rate than originally thought. It was previously believed that FMDV evolution is mainly driven by mutations caused by small copying errors that accumulate in the RNA genome of the virus when […]
  • Scientists at The Pirbright Institute have used genetic engineering to develop a vaccine that protects birds against both Marek’s disease and avian influenza. They say the process is faster and more efficient compared to previous methods, which will allow poultry vaccine producers to rapidly update vaccine strains in order to keep up with virus evolution.
