Technical Abstract: The Arthropod-Borne Animal Diseases Research Unit (ABADRU) has an interdisciplinary group of researchers working on a variety of viruses and vectors. Our research mission is to explore ways to detect and prevent emerging, transboundary arthropod-transmitted diseases of livestock. With expertise in microbiology, entomology, and veterinary science, we attack these arthropod-borne diseases on all three fronts. Specific diseases discussed in this proceedings include Japanese encephalitis virus (JEV), Rift Valley fever virus (RVFV); epizootic hemorrhagic disease virus (EHDV), bluetongue virus (BTV), vesicular stomatitis virus (VSV), bacterial pathogens carried by house flies, and many aspects of vectors including vector biology, field ecology, surveillance, and pest management for mosquitoes and midges.
