This conference - A Symposium on Chicken Biology - will highlight the biology of domestic chickens, in particular commercial broiler and layer breeds.
The top international researchers in this broad field will feature in the symposium to achieve two main aims:
- to disseminate research that is leading the way in our understanding of chicken biology and how this can be used to approach the significant challenges facing the domestic chicken industry.
- to consolidate this understanding into a statement founded on modern scientific evidence with the intent of shaping future government policy.
