Characterization of footrot bacteria Dichelobacter nodosus using PCR amplification and DNA sequence analysis
(TÜBİTAK The Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey, 2006)
Dichelobacter nodosus is an essential causative agent of footrot in ruminants, particularly in sheep, goats and cattle. In this study, more than 100 footrot samples were collected from 4 different farming regions in New ...
Improving the quality of wool through the use of gene markers
(South African Society for Animal Science, 2009)
This study aimed at identifying gene markers associated with wool quality traits in Merino and Merino Cross sheep using a candidate gene approach. Polymerase chain reaction-single strand conformational polymorphism (PCR-SSCP) ...
The role of Dichelobacter nodosus and Fusobacterium necrophorum in footrot in New Zealand
The aim of the research was to to elucidate the role that F. necrophorum and D. nodosus play in footrot singly or together in a pastoral farming system.
The use of artificial neural networks to diagnose mastitis in dairy cattle
The use of milk sample categorization for diagnosing mastitis using Kohonen's self-organizing feature map (SOFM) is reported. Milk trait data of 14 weeks of milking from commercial dairy cows in New Zealand was used to ...
