Characterization of virulence genes in Streptococcus suis using CRISPRi and organoid models
Streptococcus suis is a bacterial pathogen which is a major cause of mortality and economic losses in the pig farming industry. Moreover, it is also a zoonotic pathogen causing human infections worldwide. Almost 100% of pig farms worldwide ha...

The 4thInternational Workshop on Streptococcus suis and 12thannual symposium of the Swine and Poultry Infectious Diseases Research Centre (CRIPA) was organized by the University of Montreal and eleven investigators of the PIG...
The tonsillar microbiome of Streptococcus suis diseased piglets
The microbiome is important in shaping the host immune system as well as providing di- rect protection against pathogens by colonization resistance. Streptococcus suis is one of the most abundant bacteria in the oral cavity of pigs,...
Identification of novel virulence factors of Streptococcus suis:
Use of precision-cut lung slices (PCLS) and air-liquid interface (ALI) cultures as in vitro models to reduce experimental animal infection...

World Microbiome Day 27 June 2020
On World Microbiome Day public engagement events are happening worldwide to celebrate the wide diversity of the microbiome and its importance in human and planetary health, as well as in our food system. ...
Primary porcine respiratory epithelial cell models used in the PIGSs project to study host–pathobiont interactions in the respiratory tract: PCLS model.
The PIGSs project aims to improve our current understanding of the interplay of commensals, pathobionts, and keystone pathogens in the respiratory tract. Studies to dissect these complex processes should be carried out in respective animal models,...
Primary porcine respiratory epithelial cell models used in the PIGSs project to study host–pathobiont interactions in the respiratory tract: ALI culture.
There is a growing need for physiologically relevant models of the respiratory epithelium, but recreating these complex functions in vitro is a considerable challenge. In the PIGSs project, Air-Liquid-Interface (ALI) cultures from primary porcine ...

On 29-31 August 2017, the project members of the PIGSs project gathered at Hotel Reehorst (Ede, the Netherlands) for the official Kick-off meeting....
New logo for the PIGSs project
The new logo of the PIGSs project is ready!...
The effective control of S. suis infectious disease is hampered by the lack of knowledge. Therefore, the PIGSs project addresses the complete disease triangle to study the necessary pre-conditions for disease to occur. ...
