Collection of CH4D chicken health and disease data is complete


After several months of processing and cleaning, a completed database is now in use for all 1280 birds sampled by the study, complete with their health, management, disease screening and follow-up data. Serological results from the ELISA tests have been explored in order to check their quality and determine the best methods to deal with the data generated. This is now ready to be linked with the genetic data for genome-wide association studies and further analyses to be carried out.
