Research Project: Development of Disease Resistant Genetic Markers Associated with Necrotic Enteritis

Location: Animal Biosciences and Biotechnology Laboratory

Project Number: 1245-32000-097-12
Project Type: Trust

Start Date: Jun 14, 2011
End Date: Jun 13, 2016

Objective:
Develop DNA markers associated with causative pathogens of necrotic enteritis.

Approach:
DNA markers will be identified first by analyzing genetic differences of disease resistance difference in NE between two genetic lines of poultry; second by analyzing transcriptional profiling based on gene microarray and RNA sequencing, SNP genotyping of NE-related markers using SNP array; and finally validating NE-associated biomarkers in commercial chickens.
