The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) 16th International Biosafety Symposium, which will focus on "The Power of Risk Assessment."
Study investigating evolutionary dynamics of endemic avian influenza virus H9N2 in the Middle East. Its continuous prevalence has generated a more optimized replication phenotype, leading to an expanded viral host range, including mammals, which may pose public health risks beyond current outbreaks.
This paper discusses the many considerations in formulating a plan for disaster response in a high containment animal unit.
The Dairy Risk Assessment tool is an online questionnaire that helps a farmer to get an accurate understanding of the M. bovis risk on their farm. Used with their veterinarian, the tool can help a farmer make informed decisions about managing M. bovis risks and reduce possible spread of the disease.
A team at Iowa State University, and his team, have devised a way to give farms a Biosecurity Vulnerability Score (BVS) based on surveys from Iowa State University’s PRRS (porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome) Outbreak Investigation Program and data from the Morrison Swine Health Monitoring Project.
The Secure Food Supply Plans involve development of protocols including biosecurity plans, self-assessment, training, and other elements that will demonstrate the ability of the business to prevent the potential spread of disease.
This guidance document provides an overview of biosecurity analysis and risk assessment for dairy producers.
A security company will spend the next year studying how its Internet of Things (IoT) threat-scanning tool performs on the building control systems of Plum Island Animal Disease Center.
This resource offers a checklist to determine the relative biosecurity risk of feed management and delivery in dairy herds.
This resource offers a chart to assess the biosecurity risk of various factors for contagious organism transmission in dairy herds.
