HAVBRUK-Havbruk - en næring i vekst

Molecular epidemiology of infectious pancreatic necrosis virus (IPN) in Norway

Tildelt: kr 0,70 mill.





2004 - 2005


The main objective of this project is to obtain knowledge on the genetic variation of IPNV and risk factors for IPN in Norway with emphasis on Atlantic salmon. Information about the prevalence of different virus strains is important for the fish farmers, fish health services, fish health autorities and vaccine companies to combat and control the disease, The molucular biology of IPNV is well known, but a genetic characterisation of the virus causing disease outbreaks and the localization of gene sequences of importance for virulence has not been performed systematically. Tissue samples collected from sea farms experiencing clinical IPN will be examined for the presence of IPNV, and in the case of detection of virus, the gene encoding the major capsid prot ein VP2 will be sequenced. Information on virus variants will be associated with factors on management, environment and fish status in risk factor analyses.
