UGA researchers find that hunting can increase the severity of wildlife disease epidemics

...For example, their model shows that in the case of swine fever, a highly infectious disease threatening boars and pigs in Europe, hunting can increase the number of infected individuals by twenty five percent. "If we want to preserve the hunted population, we should be careful about when we schedule the ...

First big influenza genome study reveals flu evolution

... human flu isolates, as well as avian, equine, and swine flu isolates, to recognize influenza's patterns of genetic change. To do so, TIGR has built an innovative viral genomics lab, which is ramping up to sequence 100 influenza genomes weekly. Influenza poses a major public health problem. In an ordinar...
