Book Description

Advances in Animal Disease Diagnosis: Infectious animal diseases caused by pathogenic microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi and viruses threaten the health and well‐being of wildlife, livestock, and human populations, limit productivity and increase significantly economic losses to each sector. The pathogen detection is an important step for the diagnostics, successful treatment of animal diseases and control management in farms and field conditions. The classical and conventional techniques employed to diagnose pathogens in livestock species are time‐consuming and sometime give inconclusive results. In contrary, molecular techniques have the potential to quickly, reliably and unequivocally diagnose known pathogens/conditions as well as have the potential for novel pathogen detection. Recent advances in diagnostics and vaccine design using genomics are powerful new methods that have set the stage to enhance the diagnosis, surveillance and control of infectious diseases. High-throughput sequencing (HTS), for example, uses the latest DNA sequencing platforms in the detection, identification and detailed analysis of both pathogen and host genomes.

This book will explore some key opportunities in the context of animal health, such as the detection of new microorganisms and development of improved diagnosis of emerging or re-emerging diseases and other clinical conditions.


  • Comprehensive knowledge on latest molecular techniques for animal disease diagnosis and management.
  • DNA-based diagnostic techniques will assist international efforts to control the introduction of exotic diseases into new geographic areas.
  • Described latest molecular assays for rapid and accurate detection of pathogens.
  • With the new biotechnological developments, this fully updated book is a treasure trove of the latest information for animal and medical science.
  • Will help to meet out the Global challenge for sustainable food production and eradication of poverty.
