  • resistance
  • Research on practical indicators of resistance to these conditions will be required to establish relevant integrated strategies based on disease-resistant livestock. (cgiar.org)
  • Using the contrast between the resistant ITT and the highly susceptible Merino in a combined functional and comparative genomics approach, we have identified putative QTL (quantitative trait loci) for an extensive panel of parasite and immune response phenotypes and putative resistance pathways and effector molecules.

  • major
  • Distinct humoral immune response to trypanosome infection is the major feature of bovine trypanotolerance. (cgiar.org)
  • Highly virulent and increasingly antimicrobial resistant pathogens, such as Staphylococcus aureus, are major sources of hospital-acquired infections that kill some 14,000 patients annually. (wikipedia.org)
