The aim of our research programme is to learn more about biology and molecular level of transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSE) in domestic and wild animals in our circomstances of animal breeding. To know more about scrapie and scrapie associated diseases we need to do a research on biological and molecular level. Besides patohistological post-mortem diagnosis, we will try to develop other methods. Research on cellular and molecular lever will be also important contribution to the similar research in other countries and will help to prove the hypothesis that genomic and enviromental variability of the same disease exists. Results of our research may give an explanation for possible focuses of such disease and to built up our own strategy for prevention of this modern diseases.
