Cooperative Threat Reduction (CTR) Program – Anthrax Research in Kazakhstan

Through this project researchers from the M. Aikimbayev Kazakh Scientific Center for Quarantine and Zoonotic Diseases in Kazakhstan worked with U.S. researchers to apply Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and new, modern genetic techniques to predict and prevent the occurrence of anthrax. A national collection of strains and electronic database were created, enabling the identification of territories most susceptible to anthrax outbreaks. New, modern genetic techniques were also introduced to identify and diagnose the majority of anthrax strains found in Kazakhstan.
