Summary and Implications

A unique chicken resource population was used to determine that variation in several genes is associated with either resistance to colonization with the food-safety pathogen, Salmonella, or with efficiency of vaccine response to this bacterium. Knowledge of genetic variation in genes, and their associations with traits related to Salmonella response, will help to improve the wholesomeness of the food supply and to improve animal health.
