Abstract:
EADGENE is a Network of Excellence, funded by the EC. EADGENE aims to coordinate a genomics approach to the unravelling of the host-pathogen interactions in domestic livestock. Thus, EADGENE aims to provide the basic knowledge necessary for the development of new or improved therapeutics and vaccines, improved diagnostics and the breeding of farm animals for disease resistance. By concentrating on pathogens of importance in the food chain, this research will impact upon human health and lifestyle choices. The outcomes of this Network will help ensure that Europe retains its status as a world leader in animal health for years to come.

EADGENE's Research, Integration, Spreading of Excellence and Management activities bring together sufficient expertise and resources from research institutes throughout Europe to make a real difference to animal and human health.
