Technical Abstract: Here we outline serious diseases of food and fiber animals that cause damaging economic effect on products all over the world. The only vector-borne DNA virus is included here, such as African swine fever virus, and the herpes viruses discussed have a complex epidemiology characterized by outbreaks that are linked to differing susceptibility of related animals to infection and/or disease. Much work remains to be done to fully explain the genetic and ecological determinants of disease for these complex viruses.
