Lyme, an infectious disease transmitted by ticks, is of clinical concern with an increase in diagnosed patients. Many cases are not diagnosed correctly due to the method inefficiency to detect it.

Martín Resano, researcher at the MARTE Group of the I3A, tells us about the project and this worrying disease.
