Objective

A number of European, African and Latin American institutions working on ticks and tick-borne diseases (TBD) of ruminants proposes to expand their research efforts by creating a unique international consortium. They will develop an online database for hem parasites to facilitate vaccine development and improved diagnostics. Virtual tick museum will be created linking up available tick collections and used to design taxonomic keys and predictive maps for ticks infesting ruminants in the target areas. Available serological tests will be adapted to a rapid dipstick format and, together with southern blots, evaluated for collection of improved data in epidemiological studies. Four seminars will be organised; on hemparasitegenome analysis, molecular studies, chemical tick control and integrated Control strategies. All information will be published in Newsletters, CD-ROM and journals.
