Milestone strangles research tracks strains across world *H&H Plus*

  • In ground-breaking research, the DNA of strangles strains across the world has been analysed to provide information about how the disease spreads. H&H finds out more from some of those who funded and worked on the study

    RESEARCH tracking the strangles bacterium across the world has been described as an important milestone, as it reveals more about how the disease spreads and thrives.

    The largest ever study of its kind into an equine pathogen, published in journal Microbial Genomics, involved scientists in 18 countries using the latest DNA-sequencing techniques to track streptococcus equi as it caused strangles across the world.
