An advection-deposition-survival model to assess the risk of introduction of vector-borne diseases through the wind: Application to bluetongue outbreaks in Spain

Investigation article published in PLoS ONE

This work develops a methodology for estimating risk of wind-borne introduction of flying insects into a country, identifying areas and periods of high risk of vector-borne diseases incursion. This risk can be characterized by the role of suitable temperatures and wind currents in small insects` survival and movements, respectively. The model predicts the number density of introduced insects over space and time based on three processes: the advection due to wind currents, the deposition on the ground and the survival due to climatic conditions. Spanish livestock has suffered many bluetongue ou… Read more

PCR-Based Analysis of ColE1 Plasmids in Clinical Isolates and Metagenomic Samples Reveals Their Importance as Gene Capture Platforms

Investigation article published in Frontiers in Microbiology

ColE1 plasmids are important vehicles for the spread of antibiotic resistance in the Enterobacteriaceae and Pasteurellaceae families of bacteria. Their monitoring is essential, as they harbor important resistant determinants in humans, animals and the environment. In this work, we have analyzed ColE1 replicons using bioinformatic and experimental approaches. First, we carried out a computational study examining the structure of different ColE1 plasmids deposited in databases. Bioinformatic analysis of these ColE1 replicons revealed a mosaic genetic structure consisting of a host-adapted conser… Read more

Epidemiological situation of the exposure to agents causing Equine Piroplasmosis in Spanish Purebred Horses in Spain: seroprevalence and associated risk factors

Investigation published in Journal of Equine Veterinary Science

Equine piroplasmosis (EP) is a tick-borne disease caused by Babesia caballi (B. caballi) and Theileria equi (T. equi) which causes severe economic losses to the equine industry, represented by the Spanish Purebred (SP) horse in Spain. The seroprevalence of EP is known in certain regions of Spain but up to date there are no data in SP horses. The aim of this study was to determine the seroprevalence of EP in the SP breeding horse population in central Spain and to evaluate risk factors associated with the occurrence of the infection. A total of 536 horse serum samples were tested for antibodies… Read more

Comparative genomics of quinolone-resistantand susceptibleCampylobacter jejuniof oultry origin from major poultry producing European countries (GENCAMP)

EFSA Journal publish this article

A total of 502 Campylobacter jejuniisolates from poultry in 12 different European countries(10 of them the largest poultry production countries in Europe)werewhole genome sequencedto examine the genomic diversity of fluoroquinolone resistant (FQ-R) and susceptible(FQ-S)C. jejuniacross the poultry producing European countries and to determine whether the emergence of fluoroquinolone resistance among C.jejuniis related to the transmission through countries or to the selection through fluoroquinolone use in the individual countries. A high genomic diversity was obs… Read more
