Research Project: Development of Diagnostic Tools for Japanese Encephalitis Virus

Location: Foreign Arthropod Borne Animal Disease Research

Project Number: 3022-32000-025-018-M
Project Type: Memorandum of Understanding

Start Date: Sep 1, 2022
End Date: Aug 31, 2027

The purpose of this MOU is to strengthen the collaborations between the Participants in areas of mutual interest through cooperative research programs and exchanges. To this end, the Participants intend jointly to explore and coordinate research activities of mutual interest which are to be implemented by mutual understanding and in conformance with the regulations and policies of both Participants.

Evaluation of a molecular based assay (e.g. qRT-PCR) for the detection of Japanese Encephalitis virus in swine and equine. Positive controls may be used to examine the specificity and accuracy of the assay. The positive control will be derived from different Japanese Encephalitis Virus genotypes.
