Driven by my passion for virology, my current research revolves around Fowl Adenoviruses (FAdVs) detection and characterization. I am dedicated to unraveling the mysteries of these avian pathogens. I am focused on developing robust detection methods for all five FAdV serotypes (A to E). Leveraging my knowledge of viral genomics and molecular biology, I am meticulously designing primers that target conserved regions in the FAdV genome. These primers will facilitate real-time PCR for plus-minus detection and traditional PCR for identifying recombinant events. My goal is to enhance our understanding of FAdV epidemiology, genetic diversity, and improve diagnostic measures for avian diseases.
