Genes for Resistance to Salmonella in PoultryAnimal Industry Report
Extension NumberASL R2017
Summary and ImplicationsA unique chicken resource population was used to determine that variation a biological gene cluster is associated with either resistance to colonization with the food-safety pathogen, Salmonella, or with efficiency of vaccine response to this bacterium. Examination of sequence variations within genes and their associations with Salmonella response traits will help to improve the safety of food and increase animal well-being.
