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