Expanding the fight against potato blight

The pathogen causing potato blight is highly variable and evolves quickly, making it a serious challenge to control. Aarhus University is participating in a new international project that will tackle the problem by analysing potato blight’s genotypic and phenotypic variations and evolution, while designing better decision support systems.

Erysipelas - an emerging disease in animal friendly production systems for poultry and pigs

Erysipelas is a severe infectious disease caused by the bacterium Erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae. The disease is well-known, but basic knowledge particularly on the infection in chickens, is lacking. A new project (EryPoP) will provide novel information that will enable scientifically based guidelines to prevent future erysipelas outbreaks.
