Licensing Deal Will Help Combat Deadly Cattle Disease
from Washington State University
A gene-editing technology developed at Washington State University is being licensed to Genus plc, a global animal genetics company, to develop cattle that are more resistant to bovine respiratory disease, a disease that strikes cattle, especially calves. It is caused by a combination of stress and viral and bacterial infections. Affected animals develop pneumonia, which is often fatal.
