Johnes VirusJohne's disease is a prevalent, infectious and usually fatal disease primarily affecting ruminants (cattle, sheep, goats, deer, bison, etc.). Improving methods of detecting the infection is the primary focus of the Johne's Testing Center (JTC). The JTC processes thousands of samples submitted from throughout the USA and the diagnostic techniques available in our laboratory are used to study the epidemiology, economic impact, zoonotic potential, and pathogenesis of the disease in a variety of animal species. In addition to its own research program, the JTC collaborates with human and veterinary medical scientists from many countries and types of institutions. The JTC provides information and education on Johne's disease through telephone consultation, herd visits, veterinary and producer presentations, lay publications, and this web site.
