Her scientific interests lie mostly in Virology, Scrapie, Bovine spongiform encephalopathy, Genetics and Genotype. Her Virology research incorporates elements of Incubation period and Prion protein. Her Scrapie research is mostly focused on the topic PrPSc Proteins.
Nora Hunter interconnects Peptide sequence, Encephalopathy, Immunology and Brain tissue in the investigation of issues within Bovine spongiform encephalopathy. Her Genotype research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Genetic variation and Flock. Her work in Gene addresses subjects such as Molecular biology, which are connected to disciplines such as Restriction fragment length polymorphism.
Nora Hunter mostly deals with Virology, Scrapie, Bovine spongiform encephalopathy, Genotype and Genetics. Nora Hunter specializes in Virology, namely Transmission. Her Scrapie research includes elements of Veterinary medicine, Flock and Allele.
Her studies in Bovine spongiform encephalopathy integrate themes in fields like Immunohistochemistry, Encephalopathy, Blood transfusion, Infectivity and Antibody. The various areas that she examines in her Genotype study include Breed, Prp genotype, Genetic variation and HindIII. In her research, Prion protein is intimately related to Immunology, which falls under the overarching field of Disease.
The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Virology, Scrapie, Bovine spongiform encephalopathy, PRNP and Transmissible spongiform encephalopathy. Her research in Virology is mostly focused on Transmission. Nora Hunter mostly deals with PrPSc Proteins in her studies of Scrapie.
Her research in Bovine spongiform encephalopathy intersects with topics in Infectivity, Chronic wasting disease, Encephalopathy and Transgene. In her study, Molecular biology and Protein Misfolding Cyclic Amplification is strongly linked to In vitro, which falls under the umbrella field of PRNP. Her work in Transmissible spongiform encephalopathy addresses subjects such as Spongiform encephalopathy, which are connected to disciplines such as Atypical bovine spongiform encephalopathy, Atypical BSE, Prnp gene, Disease transmission and Prion Proteins.
Nora Hunter focuses on Virology, Bovine spongiform encephalopathy, Scrapie, PRNP and Transmission. The Virology study combines topics in areas such as Disease and Immunology. Her Bovine spongiform encephalopathy research incorporates themes from Transmissible spongiform encephalopathy and Transgene.
Her work on PrPSc Proteins as part of general Scrapie study is frequently linked to Wild type, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science. Her PRNP research focuses on Flock and how it relates to Fetus, In utero, Maternal Transmission, Pregnancy and Offspring. Her work carried out in the field of Genotype brings together such families of science as Incubation period and Allele.
