Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Animal health is key to ensuring and enabling global food safety and security and public health.

Understanding the pathogens (bacteria, viruses, and fungi) and studying pathogenicity, the mechanisms of infection, the epidemiology, and the systems-based studies that integrate host/pathogen research are key to the prevention and control of animal diseases. The overall goal of the special Issue is to support research in veterinary microbiology focusing on viral, bacterial, and fungal infections as well as the role of bacteria in food and foodborne diseases. Novel vaccine technology platforms and novel diagnostics for the better and earlier detection of a disease are also other priority research areas. Studies of antimicrobial resistance are also included. All research papers on different areas, e.g., immunology, epidemiology, metagenomics, etc., should be related to microbial disease, food production, and/or foodborne diseases. This Special Issue will focus on novel/new diagnostic tools, the pathogenicity, the mechanisms of infection, the epidemiology, as well as the antimicrobial resistance. The topics of this Special Issue include, but are not limited to:

  1. Presence of ESBL E. coli in ruminants.
  2. Lactococcosis and vibrosis in fish.
  3. Mastitis: the role of St. aureus.
  4. Pestiviruses in ruminants.
  5. Viral diseases in fur animals.
  6. Viral neuroinfections in domestic animals.
  7. SARS-COV-2 in animals and the environment, updated research.
  8. Zoonoses of high importance for public health, e.g., brucellosis: current research in persistence.
  9. Foodborne pathogens and microbiome.
  10. Non-starter lactic acid bacteria in dairy antibiotic resistance, virulence genes, technology, etc.).
