Project: Research

Project Description

Swine dysentery is an infectious disease of significant economic importance caused by Brachyspira hyodysenteriae. There is no effective vaccine available. This project will combine modern techniques in microbial genomics and proteomics to identify outer membrane proteins of B. hyodysenteriae and evaluate their role as candidate vaccine antigens.
