Understanding the biology of transmissible spongiform encephalopathies - including sheep scrapie, cattle BSE and several related human conditions including CJD - forms a significant part of BBSRC's overall research programme which, in 1997-98, saw Pounds 34.2 million spent on agri-food research, Pounds 26.3 million on plant and microbial research, Pounds 25 million on animal sciences, and Pounds 24.7 million on both biomolecular sciences and genes and developmental biology.
