Typing of Pasteurella multocida
The objective of the project was to establish a novel DNA-based typing scheme for Pasteurella multocida.This publication describes the development of the first ever Multi-locus Sequence Typing scheme for this bacteria. .
Further development of a live attenuated vaccine for chicken anaemia virus
This study is a follow up to a previous study on chicken anaemia virus and the improvement of a Live Attenuated Vaccine for the virus.
Determination of the genomic sequence of Mycoplasma gallisepticum
This study follows the University of Melbourne project to sequence the genome of the Mycoplasma gallisepticum disease.This project was undertaken in order to develop a better vaccine against this disease.
The effect of Newcastle disease vaccination with strain V4 on the course of infections with the Peat
This study sought to deliver data from experiments on whether vaccination with V4 is effective against NDV, the Peats Ridge strain of the virus, and the serological response to infection with the Peats Ridge strain prior to vaccination. .
Live vaccines for three species of Eimeria
The objective of this project was to attenuate two strains of three species of Eimeria in order to candidate vaccine lines in terms of drug sensitivity.
Development of a live attenuated vaccine for chicken anaemia virus
The chicken anaemia virus is associated with increased mortality rates amongst chickens.This study makes considerable progress towards developing a defined attenuated vaccine against the virus.
