genome, an important agricultural and domestication trait. Second, we investigate the effects and interaction of photoperiod and temperature on the transcriptome of the quail medial basal hypothalamus, revealing key mechanisms of photoperiodism. Finally, we investigate the
response of quail to H5N1 influenza infection. In quail lung, many critical immune genes and pathways were downregulated, and this may be key to the susceptibility of quail to H5N1.This genome will facilitate further research into diverse research questions using the quail as a model avian species.
