The research was made possible in part by endowing Foundation gifts from Elton and Claire Maddox and the Georgia Poultry Federation and is part of the Association’s comprehensive research programme encompassing all phases of poultry and egg production and processing. A brief summary of the completed project is shown below. A complete report, along with information on other Association research, may be obtained by going to USPOULTRY’s website. The project summary is as follows.

  • Project #711: Improvements in Molecular Diagnostics for Mycoplasma, Infectious Laryngotracheitis Virus and Other Important Avian Respiratory Pathogens (Dr Naola Ferguson-Noel, University of Georgia, Athens, Georgia)

Dr Naola Ferguson-Noel at the University of Georgia Poultry Diagnostic and Research Center recently completed a project in which research was conducted to develop and compare novel next generation sequencing techniques. This research identifies relevant respiratory pathogens quickly and also differentiates them between vaccine and field strains.

The research summary can be found on the USPOULTRY website. Information on other Association research may also be obtained by visiting USPOULTRY.
