Advancements And Technologies In Pig And Poultry Bacterial Disease Control 1st Edition

Advancements and Technologies in Pig and Poultry Bacterial Disease Control provides the most up-to-date knowledge on the tools and technologies used in the economics, prevention, monitoring and control of the most important bacterial diseases in these two important livestock species. Written by international experts in veterinary medicine, veterinary science, agricultural economics and environmental monitoring, this book provides state-of-the-art information regarding the application of technology to the prevention and control of bacterial disease in pigs and poultry.

It presents the most up-to-date information on the major bacterial pathogens, why they are important, their epidemiology, pathogenesis and molecular basis of their virulence.
Additional sections examine how genomic sequencing addresses the development of disease biomarkers for faster and highly specific diagnosis and how next generation sequencing can identify good and bad microflora. This book will be a valuable resource for veterinarians, epidemiologists, animal scientists, technologists, and researchers studying precision livestock farming. Students in veterinary, animal science and bio-science courses will also find it useful for its coverage of diseases and monitoring tools.

  • Highlights crossover technologies from human to veterinary medicine, including the use of bioinformatics and genomics for disease prevention
  • Uses results from the EU FP7-funded Pro Health project, the largest of its type ever awarded by the EU
  • Examines how genomic analysis via next generation sequencing and microarray platforms can be exploited to develop novel biomarkers of bacterial disease in animals
  • Reports on novel environmental monitoring tools and their use in determining disease threshold levels within herds and flocks
