A veterinary research team has discovered the specific genetic mutations that make Campylobacter jejuni such a virulent strain of bacteria in ruminant animals such as sheep and cattle. The research could lead to a vaccine or new ways to control the bacteria.
The alarm calls of songbirds are dramatically impaired by road traffic noise, a new study demonstrates. Research has shown that signals critical for the survival of animals are compromised when birds live near even moderately busy roads.
Investigators will soon offer a strong platform to develop needed innovations and recruites for the aquaculture industry.
