Arthritis can cause significant losses for chicken and turkey producers— anywhere from 5 to 40 percent of a flock can be lost when a reovirus that causes arthritis takes hold. A University of Minnesota research team has spent the past seven years developing tools producers can use to control this nagging and sometimes devastating condition.

A high-performance, high-resolution DNA sequencer was installed in the research laboratory at the University of Minnesota Mid-Central Research and Outreach Center in Willmar, Minnesota, in November to help provide solutions to problems facing the turkey industry.
