Research Project: FUNCTIONAL GENOMICS FOR DIETARY IMMUNOMODULATION

Location: Animal Biosciences & Biotechnology Laboratory

Project Number: 1245-32000-097-04-T
Project Type: Trust Fund Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Jun 1, 2008
End Date: May 31, 2013

Objective:
To evaluate intestinal gene expression associated with dietary immunomodulation using phytonutrients.

Approach:
Broiler chickens will be treated with various phytonutrients and their effects on avian immune response to mucosal pathogens will be evaluated using established disease parameters and various immunological assays.
