Interacciones ecológico-evolutivas entre aves y bacterias: implicaciones en huevos y plumas

Rafael Ruiz de Castañeda Blum defended the PhD Thesis at the Faculty of Biology of the Complutense University of Madrid


Esta tesis doctoral se encuadra dentro del campo de investigación de la ecología microbiana aviar. Se estudiaron las interacciones ecológicas y evolutivas entre diversos tipos de bacterias cultivables y un paseriforme troglodita modelo, el papamoscas cerrojillo Ficedula hypoleuca en una población montana del centro de España. Por tratarse de un campo de investigación altamente novedoso esta tesis tiene un importante carácter descriptivo. El primer bloque temático de la tesis, que incluye tres capítulos, ofrece una descripción cuantitativa y cualitativa de las bacterias cultivables potencialmen… Read more

sanidadanimal.info published this online article


The Spanish Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Environment (MAGRAMA) made official on March 13th, 2012 the declaration of the first case of Schmallenberg virus (SBV) infection in Spain. This first outbreak occurred in Cordoba (Andalusia), in the location of Hinojosa del Duque.On March 5th, 2012 sheep foetus was born with congenital lesions compatible with SBV infection, presenting arthrogryposis, kyphosis, lordosis and cerebellar hypoplasia. The farm where this malformation was found is extensive and mixed, with a census of 644 sheep and 12 goats. According to the epidemiological survey, simila… Read more

Molecular epidemiology of Mycobacterium bovis and Mycobacterium caprae in Spain

PhD Thesis defense by Sabrina Rodríguez Campos at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of the Complutense University of Madrid


The eradication of bovine tuberculosis is indispensable due to its negative impact on animal health and welfare, and national as well as international trade. Moreover, the infection threatens endangered animal species and humans. Mycobacterium (M.) bovis and M. caprae are the main causative agents of animal tuberculosis in Spain. Although the cattle herd prevalence has been drastically reduced in the last decade (1.15%, 2010), bovine tuberculosis remains a problem. The use of typing techniques contributes to a better control and understanding of the molecular epidemiology of the disease and th… Read more

African Swine Fever: An Epidemiological Update

Investigation published in Transboundary and Emerging Diseases


African swine fever (ASF) is one of the most important swine diseases, mainly because of its significant sanitary and socioeconomic consequences. This review gives an update on the epidemiology of the disease and reviews key issues and strategies to improve control of the disease and promote its eradication. Several characteristics of ASF virus (ASFV) make its control and eradication difficult, including the absence of available vaccines, marked virus resistance in infected material and contaminated animal products, and a complex epidemiology and transmission involving tick reservoir virus int… Read more

Flavobacterium oncorhynchi sp. nov., a new species isolated from rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss)

Investigation article published in Systematic and Applied Microbiology


Eighteen isolates of a Gram-negative, catalase and oxidase-positive, rod-shaped bacterium, recovered from diseased rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss), were characterized, using a polyphasic taxonomic approach. Studies based on comparative 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis showed that that the eighteen new isolates shared 99.2-100% sequence similarities. Phylogenetic analysis revealed that isolates from trout belonged to the genus Flavobacterium, showing the highest sequence similarities to F. chungangense (98.6%), F. frigidimaris (98.1%), F. hercynium (97.9%) and F. aquidurense (97.8%). DNA-DNA… Read more
