Tularemia is a rare disease caused by the bacteria Francella tularensis. Wild animals, especially rabbits and some domestic animals are reservoirs for the bacteria. The disease is transmitted to humans through the bite of ticks or deer flies or through handling infected animal carcasses. While tularemia infections may result in a number of different clinical presentations, the most frequent symptoms are an ulcer at the site of the infection and swelling of lymph nodes.
PHO Microbiology Rounds: CRISPR Diagnostics for Tackling Antimicrobial Resistance
This PHO Microbiology Rounds will present on new diagnostic sensors at the interface of cell-free synthetic biology, next generation micro/nanoscale sensing systems, and engineering design for clinical and commercial translation.
