SaNoVac - Nanoparticle encapsulation of a plant-produced vaccine against piscine reovirus infection in salmon

Tobacco expression system will produce surface antigens of piscine reovirus that will be delivered as a nanoparticle-based vaccine to fish.

In this project we have put together partners covering methods of antigen production in plants (tobacco plants, Bioforsk/Max Planck Institute), a leading research group in nanoparticle formulation (Langer ́s group at MIT, USA), and two fish immunology/vaccinology groups (NMBU/UIT).
