Project description: ANTIGONE is a Large Scale Integrating Project, funded by the European Commission’s FP7 program under contract number 278976. The consortium collaborates in advancing our knowledge of viruses and bacteria from animals. In particular, ANTIGONE focuses on the question: “why do some viruses and bacteria that come from animals cause epidemics in humans, whilst others do not?” SaBio-IREC participates with primary research and horizontal actions, with emphasis on vector-borne diseases, Mycobacterium bovis and Escherichia coli. ANTIGONE will run from November 2011 to November 2016.
