Objectives
To define the gene reorganizations that occur in the duck Ig H chain locus during the transcription and expression of [mu], [epsilon], [epsilon](~Fc) and [alpha] H chain isotypes; to complete our repertoire of genetic and serological reagents defining the duck T and B cell phenotypes and subpopulations; to apply the reagents to studies of the anatidine immune system during development and in disease.
