Defining the prevalence and distribution of genetic markers of resistance within Ethiopian poultry ecotypes

Work is underway to define the prevalence and distribution of genetic markers of resistance within and between well-defined local Ethiopian poultry ecotypes.  This week, Takele Taye (PhD student ILRI and The University of Nottingham) starts to extract DNA from chicken blood samples collected during the recent field sampling.
