  • A study by Kansas State University provides more accurate half-life measurements that confirm African swine fever virus (ASFV) can survive a simulated 30-day transoceanic voyage in contaminated plant-based feed and ingredients. Their findings are published in Emerging Infectious Diseases. The research team, headed by Megan Niederwerder, assistant professor of diagnostic medicine and pathobiology in the […]
  • Morris Animal Foundation-funded researchers at Oregon State University discovered areas in the African buffalo (Syncerus caffer) genome linked to risk for tuberculosis (TB) infection. The researchers discovered areas of genetic code variation near genes associated with immunity to bacterial infections and demonstrated that these variations correlated with TB resistance. The team published their findings in […]
  • An international team of researchers has shown that antimicrobial-resistant infections are rapidly increasing in animals in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). The team, led by Thomas Van Boeckel, SNF Assistant Professor of Health Geography and Policy at ETH Zurich, has published a map of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in the journal Science. The team of researchers […]
