    About This Project

    Ticks are the #2 carrier for human pathogens and the #1 carrier for animal pathogens. They carry hundreds of bacteria and viruses, many of these result in diseases in people and animals.

    The good news is that ticks have good bacteria that fight off these ugly pathogens. This research aims to find an eco-friendly way to increase the good bacteria and block the harmful ones.
    Blast off!
