US-UK Collaborative Research: Host Resistance to Avian Pathogenic E. Coli

Scientists from Iowa State University and the Roslin Institute, University of Edinburgh (United Kingdom), are collaborating to reduce the impact of Avian colibacillosis, a disease of poultry caused by E. coli. This project brings together U.S. and U.K. poultry immunology, genomics, and microbiology to develop veterinary and breeding strategies to produce healthier chickens. 

NIFA originally published this impact in the NIFA 2017 Annual Report. Want to read about more impacts like this? Check out Fresh from the Field, a weekly bulletin showcasing transformative impacts made by grantees funded by NIFA.
