“A DNA-Based Microbial Surveillance Platform Can Provide Insights on Bacterial Interactions Leading to Coinfections in Broiler Chickens.”

Presented By: Hector Leyva Jimenez, Ph.D., PAS, Associate Research Scientist, United Animal Health


DNA-based microbial surveillance is a culture-independent tool which provides a snapshot of the microbes present in a sample at the time of collection. The DNA of all microbes in the sample is preserved regardless of their fragility, viability, or laboratory growth requirements and can be tested for gene sequences from a wide variety of microbial species. Moreover, the surveillance tool can identify microbial issues by quantifying specific virulence genes carried by pathogenic strains and serotypes of different species including avian pathogenic E. coli, toxigenic Clostridium species, or Salmonella, providing insight into the disease processes affecting growth performance.
