The project was initiated in response to reports in 1995 that a more severe strain of IBDV was presenting in Victoria and NSW. The study aims to characterise these strains, to compare  local IBDV strains with those of other countries, and to determine whether current vaccines provide protection against the recently identified aggressive strains.
