Poult enteritis and mortality syndrome (PEMS) is an intestinal disease of turkeys with a complex and multifactorial aetiology. It is characterized by high morbidity, mortality, and immune dysfunction in young turkeys. One of the earliest indications that the immune system is affected during PEMS is ...

Increased numbers of new pathogenic infections and the development of antibiotic resistance to many old pathogens have forced us to focus on prevention, rather than treatment, of infectious diseases. Widespread vaccination has therefore become a major target for many countries. However, numerous...

The four main ecological concerns from transgenic Bt crops are gene flow of the transgenes to other plant species or strains, evolution of resistance by the target pests, effects of the Bt protein in the soil, and harmful effects on non-target species exposed to the Bt protein. In terms of the...

The development of DNA microarrays for livestock species is described. These useful genetic tools are expected to have a significant impact on the elucidation of complex traits such as growth and body composition, reproduction, immune response and disease resistance. Progress towards the design and ...
