Tick-borne infectious agents: Anaplasma capra, a bacterial species newly described in France

Molecular biology tools make it possible to detect many infectious agents (viruses, bacteria or parasites) in the blood of apparently healthy animals and then to genotype them. The number of species characterised is constantly increasing, both in wildlife and in domestic animals. Do we really know all their diversity?

Paradigm, innovation in the fight against paratuberculosis

This innovation, made possible thanks to the cooperation of the health (GDS France) and genetic selection (Allice) networks, will strengthen the fight against paratuberculosis, an insidious disease that is widespread in cattle and systematically fatal. Paratuberculosis control plans combined with genomic mating plans - based on resistance indicators obtained by genotyping - will enable the disease to be managed in advance and will provide breeders - in the Holstein breed in the first instance - with the means to act in a more optimal way.

To vaccinate or not to vaccinate: the case of an infectious bovine disease

Vaccination can be very effective in the fight against infectious diseases. But many factors are involved and it is sometimes difficult to know whether vaccination is really beneficial. A simulation model of the spread of an infectious disease in cattle has been developed by researchers from the UMR BIOEPAR (INRAE-Oniris) to help in the decision to vaccinate.
