Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Emerging and re-emerging zoonotic microorganisms constitute a considerable challenge to global health security. The advent of novel diagnostics tools for use either in fully equipped and technologically advanced laboratories or in in-clinic settings contributes to the early detection of and rapid response to these health threats. Farm animals and wildlife can be a source of zoonotic microorganisms, but are sometimes neglected due to the lack of proximity to sufficiently equipped laboratories. Moreover, economic restraints do not allow for extensive farm animal and wildlife testing.
The aim of this Special Issue is: a) to assess the current situation on the presence of zoonotic farm animal and wildlife microorganisms and the factors associated with their abundance and distribution; and b) to propose new or optimized and fully validated methods for their detection.
