Emergence of the chicken as a model organism: implications for agriculture and biology

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract / Description of output

Many of the features of the chicken make it an ideal model organism for phylogenetics and embryology, along with applications in agriculture and medicine. The availability of new tools such as whole genome gene expression arrays and single nucleotide polymorphism panels, coupled with the genome sequence, will enhance this position. These advances are reviewed and their implications are discussed.
