CAPACITY BUILDING IN WILDLIFE DISEASE SURVEILLANCE AND EMERGENCY RESPONSE

College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences (CVMBS) in Collaboration with Tanzania National Parks (TANAPA) conducted a tailor-made short course for TANAPA employee on Wildlife Disease Surveillance and Emergency Response from 18th to 23rd March, 2019.  The training aimed to enhance competences among TANAPA employees in routine surveillance and responses to disease outbreaks in wild animal populations and consequently reduce the social, human health, economic and ecological impacts of wildlife disease outbreaks.

 Future course will be tailored for Game Officers and Tour Guides focusing mainly on Wildlife Disease surveillance and Public Health

YOU ARE ALL WELCOME

SUMMARY

The team of researchers from the International Centre of Insect Physiology and Ecology (icipe, Kenya) are in SUA for week-long laboratory training on the “Application of high-resolution melting (HRM) analysis in surveillance and forensic screening of illegal trade of bushmeat in Tanzania and Kenya”. The training is hosted by Prof. Benezeth Mutayoba and funded by USAID through a collaborative project, which involves several international partners, including icipe, SUA, the Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS), the National Museums of Kenya and the Smithsonian Institution (USA).

The research team is exploring a simpler, more rapid and cost-effective approach of identifying illegal trade of wildlife products such as bushmeat, to deter wildlife crimes which affect economies negatively by depleting valuable wildlife resources. At present, this entails analysing for differences in cytochrome oxidase 1 (CO1) gene DNA barcode sequences between vertebrate species. However, this process is laborious and costly for mass screening of suspect samples. The collaborative project has optimized HRM analysis of mitochondrial PCR amplicons to quickly pre-screen samples for bushmeat identification before forensic sequencing.

During this visit, the icipe team has introduced the capacity of HRM analysis based on the MIC-4 real-time PCR platform to the SUA partner. The capacity of HRM analysis for quickly differentiating DNA sequences extends to diverse applications. This seminar will also discuss how HRM analysis can be applied to pathogen surveillance and discovery, strain differentiation of animal, human and plant pathogens.

 

The seminar targets students and researchers involved in Wildlife Conservation, animal, human and plant disease research.
