The applied development of a tiered multilocus sequence typing (MLST) scheme for Dichelobacter nodosus (2018)
Journal Article
Blanchard, A. M., Jolley, K. A., Maiden, M. C., Coffey, T. J., Maboni, G., Staley, C. E., …Tötemeyer, S. (in press). The applied development of a tiered multilocus sequence typing (MLST) scheme for Dichelobacter nodosus. Frontiers in Microbiology, 9, doi:10.3389/fmicb.2018.00551. ISSN 1664-302X

Dichelobacter nodosus (D. nodosus) is the causative pathogen of ovine footrot, a disease that has a significant welfare and financial impact on the global sheep industry. Previous studies into the phylogenetics of D. nodosus have focused on Australia... Read More

Subset-specific expression of toll-like receptors by bovine afferent lymph dendritic cells (2017)
Journal Article
Werling, D., Hope, J. C., Siddiqui, N., Widdison, S., Russell, C., Sopp, P., & Coffey, T. J. (2017). Subset-specific expression of toll-like receptors by bovine afferent lymph dendritic cells. Frontiers in Veterinary Science, 4, doi:10.3389/fvets.2017.00044. ISSN 2297-1769

Within the ruminant system, several possibilities exist to generate dendritic cells migrating out from the tissue into the regional draining lymph nodes as afferent lymph dendritic cells (ALDCs). Here, we analyzed toll-like receptor (TLR) 1–10 mRNA e... Read More

Virulence related sequences; insights provided by comparative genomics of Streptococcus uberis of differing virulence (2015)
Journal Article
Hossain, M., Egan, S. A., Coffey, T., Ward, P. N., Wilson, R., Leigh, J., & Emes, R. (2015). Virulence related sequences; insights provided by comparative genomics of Streptococcus uberis of differing virulence. BMC Genomics, 16, doi:10.1186/s12864-015-1512-6

Background Streptococcus uberis, a Gram-positive, catalase-negative member of the family Streptococcaceae is an important environmental pathogen responsible for a significant proportion of subclinical and clinical bovine intramammary infections. C... Read More
