Proteomic and biochemical approaches to investigate the interactions between the Eastern Oyster, Crassostrea virginica and the MSX parasite, Haplosporidium nelsoni
The host parasite system of the MSX parasite, Haplosporidium nelsoni, in the eastern oyster, Crassostrea virginica, poses many challenges for experimental study. The interactions that are involved in the development of the typically high prevalence and intensities of disease encountered in certain e...
Pathogenesis of frog virus 3 (Ranavirus sp, Iridoviridae) in the wood frog, Rana sylvatica (Lithobates sylvaticus)
Amphibian populations suffer massive mortalities from infection with Frog Virus 3 (FV3, Ranavirus, Iridoviridae), a pathogen also responsible for mortalities of fish and reptiles. Wood frogs, Rana sylvatica, have been proposed as a research model to study diseases of native amphibians in North A...
