Improving tick-resistance in beef cattle

Indicative Funding
$15,000 over 4 years (administered by University of Queensland)
Rhipicephalus australis (cattle tick) is an economically important tick for cattle industry in Australia with losses estimated at more than 146 million dollars per year. Cattle manifest a considerable variability in resistance to R. australis. The study intends to identify biomarkers that will allow the identification of tick resistant cattle. Exosomes have been used to identify biomarkers for the prediction of human diseases. Exosomes of cattle resistant or susceptible to tick infestation will be examined and compared to identify biomarkers for tick resistance.
