Characterising population structure and diversity of Australian Eimeria

Morgan, Jessica. Characterising population structure and diversity of Australian Eimeria. Lead Agency: Department of Employment, Economic Development and Innovation (DEEDI).

Project Start: 1 August 2010

Project End:31 July 2013


Develop microsatellite markers to distinguish strains of Eimeria acervulina, E. brunetti and E. maxima. Conduct nationwide sampling of chicken faeces to build baseline of Eimeria population genetic diversity for 5 economically important speces (3 species above plus E. tenella and E. necatrix). Conduct focused local screening to assess temporal changes in populations historically sampled.
