More pig meat is eaten globally than any other meat, and Streptococcus suis is a leading cause of entrenched endemic disease in pigs and a major driver of antibiotics use in this species around the world. In addition the pathogen presents a zoonotic threat in some regions, notably in Asia. This talk attempts to link key practical clinical questions with advances in research recently completed or ongoing in Cambridge, notably based on genomic analysis of what is believed to be the largest clinically phenotype collection of S. suis in the world. The question of how to harness genomic research to underpin real-life clinical outcomes for everyday pathogens is of broader relevance and this talk sets out to offer some insights into that wider question.

This talk is part of the Departmental Seminar Programme, Department of Veterinary Medicine series.
