Objectivos do ADDAV Os principais objectivos de este projecto de investigação foram: Merogony / Desenvolvimento de métodos de diagnóstico e vacinas, para espécies altamente patogénicas de Theileria sp. que afectam pequenos ruminantes na China. Zona endémica de Theileria sp. na RP China Geographic distribution of Theileria sp. (China) in the northwest part of the People’s Republic of China. Endemic area surrounded in black. Tarefas do IBET no ADDAV Developed tasks: •Participation in the infection process and in serum/blood collection •Infected blood characterisation by PCR and Reverse line blot (RLB) technique. •Merozoites isolation and purification studies as well as identification of potential antigens. •Antigens characterisation by mass spectrometry •Establishment of In vitro cultivation of Theileria sp. (China) merozoites in erythrocytes Treino de pessoal • Coolaboração na preparação do “Workshop in Biochemical & Molecular Biology Techniques” para estudantes Chineses.
