Khazar University Life Sciences Department and the Azerbaijan Veterinary Scientific Research Institute continue the joint research started with the study of “Nodular dermatitis virus of cattle in the southern region of Azerbaijan”. At this stage, researchers carry out the process of identifying the ticks (carriers of the disease) that they collect. During this process, ticks are differentiated according to species, type, sex and age. In total, 360 ticks were collected. Within the collected ticks, 216 (63 males, 153 females) were Boophilus spp., and 144 (23 males, 44 females, 77 larvae) were Ixodid spp. The next step in the project is to detach the genome of the pathogen and study it by molecular biological methods. It should be noted that the study of the causative agent of the disease in both cattle and vectors (carriers) by modern methods (molecular biological methods) will be carried out for the first time in Azerbaijan.
