Agricultural Animal Diseases

ATCC houses numerous microorganisms, nucleic acids, and cell lines to support the development and evaluation of novel diagnostic assays, preventative treatments, and therapeutics against agricultural animal diseases.


Agricultural Animal Diseases

Animal disease outbreaks pose a significant social and economic threat toward human health, the management and veterinary care of farm animals and fish, and the production of animal-based products such as meat, milk, eggs, leather, and wool. To prevent the spread of infectious animal diseases, it is the responsibility of the animal husbandry industry to ensure the health and safety of livestock through routine vaccination and medical care.

 

To aid in the prevention and treatment of animal disease, ATCC has acquired and authenticated a vast array of pathogenic microbial strains known to cause debilitating or life-threatening illnesses in livestock, including the causative agents of:

  • Shipping fever
  • Johne's disease
  • Foot rot
  • Tetanus
  • Bluetongue disease
  • And more...
    • Let ATCC help you get your animal disease research moving faster with ATCC Genuine Cultures®! Want to go straight to nucleic acids and skip in vitro? ATCC® Genuine Nucleics offers a growing selection of native, synthetic, and quantitative CRM nucleic acids for use in assay development and performance evaluation, such as inclusivity/exclusivity and limits of detection.

      Strains by Animal

      To maintain the profitability of the animal industry, as well as ensure the quality of animal-based products, it is imperative that animal health and safety is a priority. To this end, we have compiled a brief collection of microorganisms to support animal disease research. Search for strains by animal:


      Bison

      Cattle

      Fish

      Horse

      Poultry

      Sheep

      Swine

      Strains by Product Category

      Infectious animal diseases can result in significant economic loss attributed to poor growth rates, reduced fertility, and reduced quality of animal-derived products. To protect these resources, ATCC has compiled a collection of microbial species commonly associated with agricultural animal diseases. Search for strains by product category:


      Bacteria

      Fungi
