Scientists from the Institute of Molecular Genetics of the Academy of Sciences have detected genes responsible for liver tumours. They used the MAV-2 chicken retrovirus for searching for the genes. The results indicate that experiments on the chicken model may supplement the more frequently used mouse models and yield medically utilisable data.
