Genome-wide CRISPR/Cas9 screens in pigs and chicken
The Grey lab has developed CRIPSR/Cas9 knock-out (KO) libraries for the pig and chicken genomes in order to interrogate the role of specific genes in influenza virus infection as well as infection with other important pathogens.
Identification of interferon stimulated genes that restrict cross-species transmission of influenza A virus
The Grey lab has developed libraries of interferon (IFN) stimulated genes (ISGs) from pigs and chickens to examine the factors involved in the cross-species transmission of influenza A virus (IAV).
Diagnosis of active trypanosomiasis through a parasite specific small RNA
The Grey lab and our collaborators in the Morrison lab have identified a parasite specific 7SL-derived small RNA for the diagnosis of active trypanosomiasis infection
