·         Molecular typing of birds with non-radioactive single stranded conformation polymorphism (SSCP) technique

·         PCR based assays for detection and differentiation of Mareks disease virus and Avian Leukosis virus

·         Duplex PCR for detection of Mycoplasma gallisepticum and Mycoplasma synoviae

·         PCR-RFLP method for differentiation of field strains of M gallisepticum from vaccine strains of Mycoplasma gallisepticum
