Genetic markers for improved disease resistance in animals (BPI)
- A method for determining improved disease resistance in animals is disclosed. The method assays for a novel genetic alleles of the BPI gene of the animal. The alleles are correlated with superior disease resistance. Novel nucleotide sequences, assays and primers are disclosed for the methods of the invention.
