Mycoplasma gallisepticum strain R(low) Genome Project
Mycoplasma gallisepticum is the primary etiologic agent responsible for chronic respiratory disease in chickens and infectious sinusitis in turkeys resulting in substantial economic losses to poultry producers throughout the world.
The failure or
limited protection of previous and current M. gallisepticum vaccines can be
explained by the fact that little is known regarding the virulence determinants of this
pathogen. "Attenuations of these modified live vaccines have not been defined
at the molecular level. In order to speed-up the research
