    Research roundup: Can improved genetic sequencing methods more swiftly tackle emerging disease in swine herds?

    A team of researchers in the Department of Veterinary and Biomedical Sciences at the CVM demonstrated that RNA genetic sequencing could be a robust tool for investigating and surveilling emerging viral diseases in swine herds. Read more


Current news

A recent pilot study established an approach to enable confidential data sharing to advance scientific understanding of how U.S. swine producers use antibiotics. Peter Davies, BVSc, PhD, led the study, which set out to support antimicrobial stewardship across the industry. The study identified variation in antimicrobial use among nine large U.S. swine farming systems — which together produce more than 20 million pigs each year — in 2016 and 2017.

Released during the 2020 U.S. Antibiotic Awareness Week, this Zoonoses and Public Health publication highlights collaboration among academics, the FDA Center for Veterinary Medicine, and U.S. food animal industries.
