Disentangling genetic variation for resistance and tolerance to infectious diseases in animals

Science

Nov 3, 2007

Lars RåbergAndrew F Read

Abstract

Hosts can in principle employ two different strategies to defend themselves against parasites: resistance and tolerance. Animals typically exhibit considerable genetic variation for resistance (the ability to limit parasite burden). However, little is known about whether animals can evo...read more
