NARF provides resources for a wide range of poultry research, such as genome engineering, immunology, behaviour, developmental biology and genetics.
Genome engineering facilities including primordial germ cell (PGC) technology
Genome engineering technologies can create precise changes to the genome, creating novel avian models for biomedical and agricultural research.
Behaviour, physiology and welfare of commercially relevant poultry breeds
Physiological and neuroendocrine control of avian reproduction and growth, and improving welfare of commercially relevant poultry breeds.
Understanding the role of host and pathogen factors in the outcome of infections in chickens to develop knowledge-driven strategies for disease control.
Improving our understanding of the development, organisation and functions of the avian immune system.
Understanding the genetic architecture of complex traits in poultry.
The chicken embryo as an experimental system to understand vertebrate development and congenital conditions.
