More Information:

Mycoplasma in poultry refers to infections caused by bacteria belonging to the genus Mycoplasma. These microorganisms are characterized by their lack of a cell wall, making them different from typical bacteria. In poultry farming, several Mycoplasma species can affect birds, with Mycoplasma gallisepticum (MG) and Mycoplasma synoviae (MS) being common culprits.

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.
