Genetic analysis of costly cattle disease may aid in vaccine development
GAINESVILLE, Fla. --- Researchers at the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine say proteins common to multiple strains of Anaplasma marginale, a tick-borne pathogen that costs the U.S.
cattle industry millions of dollars annually and is even more devastating in developing countries, could hold the key to developing an effective vaccine against the disease.

I’m particularly adept at making mistakes – it’s a necessity as an engineer.
What’s important is that you don’t stop at the 1st failure, the 50th or the 5,000th.
I never will. James Dyson
