The ALV-J subgroup of avian leukosis virus has emerged in recent years as causing tumours and mortalities in 25-55 week old breeder flocks and, following egg transmission, sub-optimal growth in infected progeny broiler flocks. This report describes the virological, serological and molecular biological techniques developed, assessed and used during research into new technologies for the culture and detection of ALV-J, and the development of practical methodologies for diagnosis of ALV-J related field problems in broiler flocks. 2004, 80pp, Pub No 04/116; $21
