Addressing the problem of the occurrence of bacterial, protozoan and viral zoonotic agents in small ruminant breeds
Project no. QK1910082
Category PROJEKTY NAZV / National Agency for Agricultural Research PROJECTS
The project solves selected infections of bacterial, viral and protozoan origin with zoonotic potential in small ruminants. The aim will be to develop
new, or to improve the existing molecular biological methods for the diagnosis of selected agents in animals and in the farm environment. The tools
provide the breeders with an accurate, specific and sensitive method for detecting selected agents in animals, whether in clinical or, in particular, the subclinical phase of the disease when animals do not show clinical signs but are the source of infection for others. Another part of the project will focus on food as a possible source of infection for consumers. The project will aim particularly on milk and dairy products that can be contaminated both primary and secondary from the environment. In the next phase of the project solution, the molecular analysis of resistance genes for the monitored diseases will be performed, an estimation of the degree of genetic variability and the genetic diversity will be determined.
