WP2 Vector ecology and competence

The WP2, Vector ecology and competence, is at the interface between diagnostics of new potential pathogens and the identification of emerging risks through analysing vector competence and taking into account environmental factors. The objectives of WP2 are: measuring the competence of candidate vector species for the viruses targeted in Vmerge; investigating the effects of genetic and environmental factors on vector competence; investigating the effect of ingested virus dose on competence and extrinsic incubation period (EIP); measuring the susceptibility of European cattle breeds to RVFV infection and the pathogenic effects of the virus.
