Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • Immune system

Eamon Costello focuses on Tuberculosis, Veterinary medicine, Herd, Meles and Immunology. His study of Tuberculin is a part of Tuberculosis. Restriction fragment length polymorphism is closely connected to Badger in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Veterinary medicine.

As a part of the same scientific family, Eamon Costello mostly works in the field of Herd, focusing on Tuberculin test and, on occasion, Immune system and Virology. His Meles research includes elements of BCG vaccine, Pathology, Vaccination and Immunity. His Immunology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Gene expression and Gene expression profiling.

His most cited work include:

  • Study of restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis and spoligotyping for epidemiological investigation of Mycobacterium bovis infection. (101 citations)
  • The effect of the tuberculin test and the consequences of a delay in blood culture on the sensitivity of a gamma-interferon assay for the detection of Mycobacterium bovis infection in cattle (71 citations)
  • Use of an Electronic Nose To Diagnose Mycobacterium bovis Infection in Badgers and Cattle (64 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Tuberculosis, Badger, Veterinary medicine, Meles and Immunology are his primary areas of study. His research integrates issues of Transmission, Vaccination and Virology in his study of Tuberculosis. He has researched Badger in several fields, including Culling, Epidemiology and Environmental health.

The Veterinary medicine study combines topics in areas such as Prevalence, Sett, Restriction fragment length polymorphism and Bovine tuberculosis. Eamon Costello combines subjects such as Trophic level, Feces and Disease reservoir with his study of Meles. His work in Immunology covers topics such as Disease which are related to areas like Wildlife.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Tuberculosis (55.74%)
  • Badger (42.62%)
  • Veterinary medicine (34.43%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2011-2014)?

  • Tuberculosis (55.74%)
  • Meles (32.79%)
  • Badger (42.62%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His scientific interests lie mostly in Tuberculosis, Meles, Badger, Transmission and Virology. His Tuberculosis study incorporates themes from Variable number tandem repeat, DNA profiling, Veterinary medicine, Multiple infections and Typing. His Meles study combines topics in areas such as Trophic level, Isotope analysis and Invertebrate.

His study in Badger is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both BCG vaccine and Vaccination. The concepts of his Transmission study are interwoven with issues in Isolation, Microbiology, Mycobacterium caprae and Genotyping Techniques. Eamon Costello has included themes like Feces and Immunology in his Virology study.

Between 2011 and 2014, his most popular works were:

  • The distribution of Mycobacterium bovis infection in naturally infected badgers (39 citations)
  • Bacteriological diagnosis and molecular strain typing of Mycobacterium bovis and Mycobacterium caprae (29 citations)
  • Oral vaccination of badgers (Meles meles) against tuberculosis: Comparison of the protection generated by BCG vaccine strains Pasteur and Danish (26 citations)
