Structural And Functional Investigations Into A Novel Chemokine Binding Protein Encoded By Evolutionarily Diverse Alphaherpesviruses

Grant number: DP0986228 | Funding period: 2009 - 2013

Completed

Abstract

The outcomes of this project will help control disease caused by alphaherpesviruses, including disease in livestock (horses and poultry) and wildlife (kangaroos and wallabies). This will enhance animal health and welfare and will also benefit the associated industries. Livestock industries are critically important to the Australian economy (equine and poultry industries annually contribute approximately $7.7 and $2.6 billion respectively to our GDP). Wildlife species are crucial to Australian ecosystems and feature in the Australian tourism industry. This project is expected to strengthen international research collaborations and further enhance Australia's reputation as a world-clas..
