Different types of interactions between IAV and vSDRP are possible. 1) IAV and vSDRP can bind to each other outside the cell or, 2) and 4), to the other virus when one of the two viruses has adhered to its target cell. The influenza virus can also interact with its receptor without being influenced by vSDRP

 The research carried out at BIOEPAR, with a finalised perspective, aims to produce :

  • knowledge and methods for animal health management
  • fundamental knowledge to understand the mechanisms of communicable disease emergence

More specifically, the objectives of the unit are as follows:

  • To measure the health of animal populations, to understand the determinants of health and to evaluate the means to control it.
  • To understand the functioning of vector and pathogen populations and the interactions between pathogens and host.

The disciplines involved are epidemiology, modelling, animal health economics, biology of pests and host-pest interactions, and population biology.

The objects of application are endemic animal diseases and the carriage of zoonotic agents in several European-type animal production systems. The unit is also interested in the biology of tick-borne protozoa.
