New CRISPR method produces ALV resistant chickens
Cockerels implanted with modified germ cells produce chicks resistant to ALV
A new application of CRISPR gene editing technology could hold the key to eradicating avian leukosis virus (ALV) by producing modified chickens that are completely resistant to the disease.
According to a recent paper in PNAS, researchers from the Czech Republic successfully produced ALV resistant chickens by implanting modified…
