Monitoring the effect of scrapie control policies that use genetics in different countries

Objective

In this project we want to determine the effect of introducing a genotype programme to reduce TSE incidence on the evolution of genotype frequencies, incidence of clinical disease, prevalence of infection and on relevant production traits, including fertility parameters as well as on other diseases and mortality rates. The results will be used to create mathematical and genetic models that can help to determine an optimal breeding strategy for scrape control.
