More Information:

Egg Drop Syndrome (EDS) is a viral disease that primarily affects birds, particularly chickens. The causative agent is the Egg Drop Syndrome virus (EDSV), which belongs to the family Adenoviridae. The virus is known for causing a drop in egg production and quality in affected poultry flocks.

PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) is a molecular biology technique used to amplify and analyze DNA. In the context of Egg Drop Syndrome, PCR is employed to detect the presence of the virus in samples.
