Initially, the disease agents to be studied will include Ornithobacterium rhinotracheale (ORT), Bordetella avium (BART) and Pasteurella multocida. The research will focus on development of more effective vaccines to control poultry respiratory diseases and development of improved PCR-based diagnostics for ORT and BART as well as development and adaptation of novel diagnostic platforms for diagnosis of infectious diseases.
