Title: Prevalence of Infection in Tubifex tubifex Under Different Flow Rates
Myxospores were introduced to artificial stream channels with different flow regimes (slow and fast) and containing Tubifex tubifex. Worms were removed 201 days post-exposure and a Quantitative Polymerase Chain Reaction (QPCR) assay was performed for Myxobolus cerebralis. Data show the results of the QPCR, including raw Ct values for those worms that tested positive and a summary of adjusted raw data. Ct values indicate severity of infection and are inversely proportional to the amount of parasite DNA found in each worm.
These data were collected as part of a larger study designed to determine the infection efficacy of Myxobolus cerebralis under different flow regimes using a laboratory model. All data from the larger study will be used to inform a risk assessment model.
