Queensland Lab Turns to Chytrid-Fighting Genes to Save Species on the Brink
Australia’s most iconic amphibian, the Southern Corroboree Frog (Pseudophryne corroboree), may soon be famous for more than its unusual and brilliant yellow and black color combo. One Health Research Group lab at James Cook University in Queensland is investigating two innovative methods to genetically bolster the species’ immunity to the fungal disease chytridiomycosis, with the
