Assessment of heat shock and laboratory virus challenges to selectively breed for ostreid herpesvirus 1 (OsHV-1) resistance in the Pacific oyster, Crassostrea gigas

Mass mortalities of juvenile Pacific oysters (Crassostrea gigas) in aquaculture operations have been linked to the ostreid herpes virus 1 (OsHV-1) or its variants. This oyster has heritable resilience to the virus which can provide a basis for selective breeding for higher OsHV-1 resistance, however, controlled challenge methods for improving selection response towards increased OsHV-1 … Continue reading Assessment of heat shock and laboratory virus challenges to selectively breed for ostreid herpesvirus 1 (OsHV-1) resistance in the Pacific oyster, Crassostrea gigas
