Machtinger mouse sampling

White-footed mice are a reservoir host for Borrelia burgdorferi, the causative agent of Lyme disease. Here, Erika Machtinger, Ph.D., takes a tissue sample from a captured mouse to be tested for B. burgdorferi and other pathogens, part of a tick-control field study she managed in her postdoctoral research position.
