Using Genomics To Identify Genes Resistant To PRRS

Genetics of Host Resistance to PRRS and PCV2Genetics of Host Resistance to PRRS and PCV2 Dr. Jack Dekkers, Iowa State University, presents information around the genetics of host resistance to Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome Virus (PRRSv) and Porcine Circovirus Type 2 (PCV2). Dr. Dekkers presents data and research to use genomics to identify genes / genomic regions associated with resistance / susceptibility to PRRS virus infection. Some take aways: Vaccination-co-infection design is good model for PCVAD; and PRRS and PCV2b viremia controlled by different genomic regions with versus without vaccination [video].
