Parasite Genomics for Poultry

15 September 2014

UK - Scientists from the Royal Veterinary College (RVC) have been invited to do a guest post on the Biomedcentral blog "bugbitten".

The post, by Dr Damer Blake and Professor Fiona Tomley, focuses on a study they have been involved with relating to chickens and sequencing pathogen genomes.

It also stresses on how, after more than ten years of work, genomes are now completed for the most important group of parasites that infect chickens.

This new knowledge offers exciting prospects for better control of the globally devastating chicken gut disease, coccidiosis.
