This is our Friday rubric: every week a new Science Page from the Bob Morrison’s Swine Health Monitoring Project. The previous editions of the science page are available on our website.
The MSHMP weekly report contains the graphic representation of the occurrence and dynamics of specific swine pathogens using epidemiologic tools that measures of disease occurrence such as, prevalence, cumulative prevalence and incidence. In this science page we would like to reacquaint our audience with a few of these tools.
Today we are sharing a recent publication from the MSHMP team in collaboration with the VanderWaal and Schroeder’s labs. The objective of the study was to assess the diversity of PRRS genomes within a cohort of naïve pigs undergoing a PRRS outbreak. The full paper is available online in open access.
This is our most popular series on the blog. Once a month, we are sharing with you a presentation given at the Allen D. Leman swine conference, on topics that the swine group found interesting, innovative or that lead to great discussions.
You can find all of the presentations selected from previous conferences on the blog here.
The 2023 Allen D. Leman swine conference is less than a month away. Register here!
