WP5 - Biotechnologies applied to pathogens

Development of biotechnological tools dedicated to improvment of knowledge on pathogens of species studied in WP3 and 4.

Studied pathogens are : Photobacterium damselae piscicida (fish bacterial pathogen), parasites from genus Bonamia and OsHV-1 virus (both are molluscs pathogens and for oysters in particular).

This work package consists in following actions:

  1. Comparative analysis of sequences. In silico analysis of genes and genomic regions of interest in studied pathogens (IFREMER et IFAPA).
  2. Development of analytical tools from NGS output to identify Bonamia species (IFREMER).
  3. Development of analytical tools from NGS output to identify OsHV-1 variants (IFREMER)
  4. Development of oral vaccines based on nanotechnology against Photobacterium (IFAPA).
