Mycobacterium bovis (M. bovis), the cause of bovine tuberculosis, is endemic in Kruger National Park (KNP), South Africa. The risk of spread of M. bovis infection currently prevents translocation of white rhinoceros (Ceratotherium simum) from this population. Therefore, accurate assays are necess...
