In our intention, BT should represent a model not only for the other Orbiviruses (such as African horse sickness virus or EHDV, which shares the same vector species) but also for other insect transmitted diseases, including those which infect humans. 

Using a multidisciplinary approach, which includes veterinarians, biologists, entomologists, pathologists, stat isticians, epidemiologists and bioinformaticians and through an integrative and sustainable surveillance program where, exploiting web facilities and new technologies, entomological, virological and serological data will be integrated with relevant climatic and environmental variables, this project aims at obtaining scientific knowledge on this viral disease and at understanding what is behind a new strain incursion and spreading.
