This is a project funded by the Swine Health Information Center (SHIC), which consists of a collaboration among multiple VDLs in the USA. The project has the goal to aggregate swine diagnostic data and report in intuitive formats (web dashboards and monthly PDF report), describing the dynamics of pathogen detection by PCR-based assays over time, specimen, age group, and geographical area. Data is from the Iowa State University VDL, South Dakota State University ADRDL, University of Minnesota VDL, Kansas State University VDL, and Ohio Animal Disease and Diagnostic Laboratory. Specifically, for PRRSV RFLP data and syndromic dashboards, the results are from Iowa State University VDL.
