Project context and summary :
Historically circulating in Africa, Rift Valley fever virus (RVFV) was firstly identified in Kenya in 1930, and responsible for dozens of outbreaks in Africa in the past decades. As an arbovirus, RVFV is mainly transmitted by mosquito vector, and needs to be altered between mammalian host and mosquito vector for maintaining the genome stability. In this project, we are analysing the mosquito vector competence for several RVFV variants obtained from different host cells, to better interpret the risk factors of transmission.Related team publications :
