Developing innovative and sustainable approaches to prevent the spread of African swine fever in Africa (ASF-RESIST)

The project objectives include: 1. To determine the phenotypic and genotypic features of pigs that survive ASF outbreaks; 2. To develop a community-based participatory biosecurity approach to control ASF outbreaks; 3. To evaluate ASF rapid diagnostics for use in resource constrained settings; and 4. To determine the full genome characteristics of circulating ASFV strains.
