Kiril Dimitrov, DVM, PhD, virology section head, was part of three groups that recently published journal articles covering avian topics.
The first article covers the discovery of a novel picornavirus associated with Runting and Stunting Syndrome in broiler chickens. The full text can be viewed in the Veterinary Pathology journal.
The next two articles investigate the pathogenicity and genetic diversity of Newcastle disease viruses causing outbreaks in poultry and pigeons in South-central and East Asia. Those articles can be accessed in the Journal of General Virology and MDPI’s Viruses journal.
