Molecular Study of Eimeria species in Quail birds (Coturnix coturnix japonica) in Thi-Qar Province, Southern Iraq
Keywords:Quail, Eimeria, Molecular,
Fecal samples were collected from 330 quail birds from different areas of Thi-Qar province, Iraq. All
samples were examined by traditional laboratory methods. Four species of Eimeria were diagnosed in
quail (Eimeria bateri, Eimeria uzura, Eimeria tsunodai and Eimeria fluminensis), with a total infection
was 64.54% (213 out of 330). DNA was extracted from 100 positive samples confirm the small subunit
rRNA (18s) gene by Polymerase chain reaction using a general primer for Eimeria species, Seven
genotypes were according to the identify of DNA sequences of Eimeria species in Japanese quail, the
accession codes to NCBI-Genbank. using A comprehensive phylogenetic tree was generated in the
present study, this details were being analyzed. This was the first molecular study in Iraq for Eimeria
in common quail.
