DNA vaccination of aquaculture fish with emphasis on VHSV in rainbow trout as a model

Objectives: The proposed project concerns the development of DNA   vaccines for application in farmed fish using VHS virus infection in   rainbow trout as a model. Focus will be the development of vaccine   formulations that provide high efficacy by the different routes of   administration currently used in aquaculture. Assessment of vaccine   safety is also included.    1) preparation and testing of DNA vaccine constructs  2) to identify and develop an optimal formulation for delivery of a   DNA vaccine by injection and immersion in rainbow trout using VHS as   a model  3) to perform a limited characterisation of the humoral and cellular   immune response following DNA vaccination against VHS compile data    (VHS); (VHSv); (viral hemorrhagic septicemia); (viral haemorrhagic   septicaemia); (viral hemmorrhagic septicemia)
