Project: Early pathogenesis of Yersinia ruckeri infections in rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss)
- project duration
- 01-JAN-05 – 31-OCT-09
- This research deals with the study of the early pathogenesis of infections with yersinia rukceri, which causes septicaemia in rainbow trout. First of all, the portal of entry to the body of the fish will be identified. Consequently, the interaction of Y. ruckeri with the portal of entry will be studied in greater depth. Lastly, the effect of non-antibiotic mediated control measures will be evaluated.
