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.
