NVRQS will provide FMDV A/ROK/2010 and O/ROK/2010 from pigs and cattle, as well as conduct epidemiological analysis and conduct genomic sequencing of viral isolates. ARS, PIADC will conduct FMDV pathogenicity studies on swine and cattle; inclusive of time-course study and histopathological evaluation and sample collection. NVRQS scientists will be trained to conduct research on FMDV pathogenesis using methology developed by ARS, PIADC scientists. Data generated will help to develop and upgrade current diagnostic assays for the detection of FMD circulating in south east Asia.
