Research Project: Development and Validation of Fermentation Protocols for Production of a Live Attenuated Edwardsiella Ictaluri Vaccine

Location: Warmwater Aquaculture Research Unit

Project Number: 6402-31000-009-17
Project Type: Nonfunded Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Aug 01, 2013
End Date: Sep 30, 2015

Objective:
Identify DNA sequence polymorphisms in the vaccine strain of Edwardsiella ictaluri bacteria that will enable molecular detection of wild or vaccine bacteria in pond and catfish samples.

Approach:
Existing genomic sequence from the wild and vaccinated bacteria will be analyzed to detect potential sites for the development of molecular probes. Further DNA sequencing will be performed in targeted areas to validate differences between the strains.
