Do hosts control parasite diversity? - an experimental study on soay sheep and their parasites

Objective

We aim to determine the mechanism by which a host can gain parasite resistance by investigating the inter- and intraspecific diversity of parasitic nematodes of soay sheep with genetic markers. Furthermore we will develop a fast bulk screening method for parasitic nematodes.

Funding Scheme
