Special issue “African swine fever and other swine viral diseases in Africa”
A special issue in the journal Viruses, guest-edited by Prof. Dr Mary-Louise Penrith, Dr Livio Heath and Dr Edward Abworo Okoth, features six original studies and one review on African swine fever research in Africa.
The papers contribute towards a better understanding of the multiple genotypes of the African swine fever virus to improve diagnostics and control on the continent; the immune response and genetic make-up of African domestic pigs and wild host reservoirs and vectors of the virus; and pig production systems, value chains, and socio-economic issues and their role in the maintenance and spread of African swine fever.
