    Background: Clostridium perfringens (Cp) is a Gram-positive anaerobic bacterium that causes necrotic enteritis (NE) in poultry when it overgrows in the small intestine. NE disease has previously been controlled through the use of growth-promoting antibiotics. This practice was recently banned in...

    Background: This descriptive study of the abdominal fat transcriptome takes advantage of two experimental lines of meat-type chickens (Gallus domesticus), which were selected over seven generations for a large difference in abdominal (visceral) fatness. At the age of selection (9 wk), the fat...

    Biological bases for sexual differences in the brain exist in a wide range of vertebrate species, including chickens. Recently, the dogma of hormonal dependence for the sexual differentiation of the brain has been challenged. We examined whether sexually dimorphic gene expression in the brain...
