Prevalence and Risk Factor Assessment of Peste des petits ruminants in Goats in Rajshahi, Bangladesh -
TLDR
The results of this study showed that PPR is an important goat disease in the studied areas, and an appropriate control strategy has to be designed and applied, which could involve prevention of contact with infected goats and vaccination against the PPR virus.
Mutability Dynamics of an Emergent Single Stranded DNA Virus in a Naïve Host
TLDR
The findings suggest that the high degree of genetic variation within the beak and feather disease virus species as a whole is reflected in evolutionary dynamics within individually infected birds as quasispecies variation, particularly when BFDV jumps from one host species to another.
EVIDENCE OF PSITTACINE BEAK AND FEATHER DISEASE VIRUS SPILLOVER INTO WILD CRITICALLY ENDANGERED ORANGE-BELLIED PARROTS (NEOPHEMA CHRYSOGASTER)
TLDR
The detection of two distinct lineages of BFDV in the remnant wild population of Orange-bellied Parrots, consisting of fewer than 50 birds, suggests a role for other parrot species as a reservoir for infection by spillover into this critically endangered species.
Review of psittacine beak and feather disease and its effect on Australian endangered species.
TLDR
The most recent beak and feather disease virus (BFDV) phylogenetic analyses indicate that all endangered Australian psittacine bird species are susceptible to, and equally likely to be infected by, BFDV genotypes from a range of host psITTacine species.
Differentiation of Campylobacter jejuni and Campylobacter coli Using Multiplex-PCR and High Resolution Melt Curve Analysis
TLDR
The results indicated that mPCR followed by HRM curve analysis provides a rapid (8 hours) technique for differentiation between C. jejuni and C. coli isolates.
Pigeon circoviruses from feral pigeons in Australia demonstrate extensive recombination and genetic admixture with other circoviruses
TLDR
The findings suggest that there is a high degree of genetic variation within PiCV in Columbiformes with potential greater admixture between avian circoviruses within Australia than previously known.
Structural Characterization of a Gcn5-Related N-Acetyltransferase from Staphylococcus aureus
TLDR
The study provides the first high resolution structure of this GNAT enzyme from Staphyloccocus aureus, providing a strong platform for substrate and cofactor modelling, and structural/functional comparisons within this diverse enzyme superfamily.
Genomic characterization of two novel pathogenic avipoxviruses isolated from pacific shearwaters (Ardenna spp.)
TLDR
These are the first avipoxvirus complete genome sequences that infect marine seabirds and are likely to be considered a separate species.
