Abstract

We used the powerful contemporary genetic technologies of micrarray and Q-PCR to test global gene expression in a unique population of birds after challenge with infectious bursal disease virus (IBDV). Identification of genes that have differential expression between resistant and susceptible birds helps to determine the mechanisms of host resistance to this virus and may be used to select breeding stock for greater innate resistance to viral infection.
