Porcine Circovirus
EM Porcine Circovirus 2 (QUB)
The goal of this project is to better understand the role of Porcine Circovirus in diseases of pigs. It will generate information on control measures that will have a positive impact on the health and welfare of pigs. It will also help producers meet consumer concerns for quality and safety of pork products. The lead organisation is Queen's University Belfast and there are 16 partners from EU and North America. The consortium combines the existing strengths of the partners from two previous projects in EU Framework 5, with expertise in epizootiology, nutrition, porcine genetics, bacteriology and information dissemination.
