Project: Early pathogenesis of Flavobacterium psychrophilum infections in fish.
- project duration
- 01-JAN-99 – 30-JUN-01
- The early interactions of high and low virulence F. psycrophilum strains with the gills, intestine and skin injuries will be studied in vivo and in vitro in rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss). Additionally, the influence of environmental parameters on colonisation will be assessed.The degree of serum resistance will be compared between high and low virulence strains.
