Fellow diags:

We are in the process of setting up a PCR laboratory.  Initially, the 
work that will be done relates to pathogenesis of bovine herpesviral 
infection and the pathogenesis of toxoplasmal-induced occular damage.  I 
am interested in locating references or obtaining comments on folks that 
are using this technology currently for the detection of pathogens of 
veterinary clinical importance- specifically what pathogens have they 
found this methodology useful and " economically-practical".  Also, I am 
interested if there is a need for specific development of PCR-based testing 
for certain pathogens that currently diagnostic problems (ie-for what 
pathogens would a PCR assay be useful for its detection/significance?).
