  Fifteen serotypes of E. coli isolated from poultry were subjected to RAPD-PCR using eight oligonucleotide random primers. Amplification with each of the primers resulted in generation of different DNA fingerprinting profile with varied number of bands. Dendrogram based generation of clustering of E. coli serotypes showed two major clusters. The polymorphic amplicons served as markers for E. coli species where as the unique amplicons served as markers for E. coli serotypes. RAPD based fingerprinting provided a rapid means of discriminating E. coli serotypes and considered a valuable tool for molecular typing.

  Trachea and lung tissue samples collected from a disease outbreak at Regional Poultry Farm, Kerala, India were submitted for virological investigation at Institute of Animal Health and Veterinary Biologicals (IAH & VB), Bangalore. The outbreak had taken a toll of 385 layer parent stock birds. The main symptoms and lesions were air saculitis, tracheal rales, oopheritis and salphingitis. The samples were processed and inoculated to 10th day old chicken embryos. Lesions of dwarfing and curling characteristic of Infectious bronchitis were noticed in inoculated embryos. The virus was confirmed by a modified Haemagglutination (HA) test, wherein the allontoic fluid was pretreated with crude filtrate of Clostridium perfringens before carrying out HA.

  Nearly three percent of the crushed sugarcane from sugar industries turns into Sugarcane Press Residue (SPR), which is a valuable source of minerals as well as organic matter. A biological experiment was conducted using 160 (32-week old) white leg horn hens to assess the beneficial effect of Sugarcane Press Residue (SPR) in soya and fish based diets. Two BIS (1992) specified practical control diets for both soya (T1) and fish based (T5) test diets were formulated, while the SPR was included at three levels (5%, 10% and 15%) in test diets of both soya based (T2 to T4) and fish based (T6 to T8) types to form a total of eight treatment diets. Each of such formulated diets was offered to five replicates of four birds each reared in colony cages for a period of twelve weeks. Among the egg characteristics studied, the 84 day mean egg weights were found to be 54.70, 53.58, 52.46, 54.69, 54.09, 54.22, 53.21 and 52.62 g in T1 through T8 groups, respectively. Inclusion of SPR inconsistently (p>0.05) reduced the egg weights when compared to control groups both in soya and fish based diets. Average egg shape index values ranged from 76.30 (T1) to 78.16 (T7). Mean albumen index values were comparable. Mean Haugh unit score values ranged (p>0.05) from 52.17 (T1) to 56.49 (T8). From the different egg parameters studied, it can be concluded that SPR appears to be a valuable source of organic as well as inorganic nutrients for economical layer production.
