    Ji Gaige;Liu Hongxiang;Hu Yan;Tao Zhiyun;Xu Wenjuan;Li Huifang;

    In this study,the ontogeny of body and the growth pattern of heart,brain,liver,lung,gizzard,glandular stomach and spleen of duck embryos were measured from embryonic day 2 to embryonic day 26. The results indicated that the organs development trend of absolute growth and relative growth rate were almost synchrony,and both exhibited increase from embryonic day 20 to embryonic day 22. The whole growth intensity was from strong to weak with age increasing. The results of differentiation growth rate and the relative growth coefficient indicated that the brain and heart was premature while gizzard was serotinous; the liver,gizzard,and spleen occupied the dominant position on embryonic days 16,18 and 26. Therefore,duck embryos growing process was in a wave type state; different organs of duck embryos had different growth and development patterns; the relative growth index could supersede the differentiation growth rate preferably.

  • Comparative Study on Pig Raising between Bio-bed System and Cement Ground System

    Wang Xiaohong;Yan Linjun;Lu Dexiang;

    In order to conduct the comparison of pig raising under different raising modes,a total of 40 pigs with the weights of 20- 30 kg were randomly divided into two groups( experimental group,fermentation bed; control group,cement ground). During a 81-day-test,pigs in the two groups were fed with same diets,and growth performance of pigs was compared. After the feeding,six pigs of each group were slaughtered in order to examine meat quality. The results showed that average daily gain of pigs in test group was 17. 93% higher than that in control group,difference between the two groups was significant. Feed weight ratio of pigs in test group was 14. 73% lower than that in control group,difference between the two groups was not significant. Color,water loss,drip loss,intramuscular fat,etc. of meat in test group were all better than that in control group,difference of drip loss between the two groups was extremely significant,while differences of color,water loss and intramuscular fat( IMF) between the two groups were not different. Pig raising by bio-bed system could improve growth performance and pork quality comparing with cement ground system.

    Detection of pigs epidemic diarrhea virus( PEDV) was conducted on 331 piglets diarrhea fecal samples collected in Nanning,Yulin and other 12 areas of Guangxi Province from January of 2011 to April of 2014 by the method of reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction( RT-PCR). The results showed that the positive samples of PEDV were 210 and the positive rate was 63. 44%. The clone and sequencing of M gene was carried out on 25 positive samples. PEDV reference strains were selected from Gene Bank to conduct the sequence homology alignment analysis and the phylogenetic tree of M gene. The M gene homology and amino acid sequence identity between 25 isolated strains and 51 reference strains were 96. 0%- 99. 6% and 94. 3%- 99. 6%,respectively. The genetic variation analysis of M gene showed that the genetic relationship of PEDV prevalent strains in Guangxi Province from 2013 to 2014 was close to that of the prevalent strains in Beijing,Anhui,Wuhan,Hebei and Guangdong from 2010 to 2013,and which were far from that of the Chinese early isolates CH / S( Gen Bank number: JN547228),vaccine strain CV777( Gen Bank number: AF353511) and Attenuated DR13( Gen Bank number: JQ023162). Indicating that the PEDV strains prevalent in Guangxi in recent years showed significant variation with the early isolates.

    The paper aimed to establish a rapid multiplex PCR assay for detection of H5,H9 subtype avian influenza virus( VIA) and duck Tembusu virus( DTMUV). According to the HA gene sequences of H5 and H9 AIV and NS5 gene of DTMUV in Gen Bank,three sets of primer specific to these three kinds of viruses were designed,respectively. The multiplex PCR for simultaneous detection of AIV( H5,H9) and DTMUV was established,and was applied in clinical. The specificity and sensitivity of the multiplex PCR were tested. The results showed that the assay could specifically amplify the gene fragments of H5 AIV( 380 bp),H9AIV( 732 bp),and DTMUV( 250 bp),and were all negative for other duck viruses. This method showed the sensitivity of 533 pg / μL for H5 AIV,56 pg / μL for H9,and 6. 6 ng / μL for DTMUV. Additionally,the detection results of 200 clinical samples indicated that this multiplex PCR method was a rapid,sensitive and specific tool for clinical sample detection.

    Liu Yanzhong;Pan Caixia;Chen Yingyi;Sun Chuanren;Wang Limin;

    In view of existing problems at current aquaculture networking,such as nonlinear characteristic of fault and faults are easily affected by many factors,a fault diagnosis model based on neural network was proposed. In the building process of the model,the common fault types in the field of aquaculture networking were first analyzed and the types of fault mode were summarized. Afterwards,the evaluation indices of fault diagnosis were made,and eventually the fault diagnosis system of aquaculture networking was constructed using neural network principle. The fault diagnosis system could not only reduce the communication burden,but also have high diagnostic rate. Thus,it could be well applied in the fault diagnosis system for aquaculture networking.

  • Optimization of Cottonseed Meal De-gossypol Process by Extrusion via Genetic Algorithm Based on Artificial Neural Network

    Zhang Qiang;Wu Hongbin;Jin Xinwen;

    [Objective] The paper aimed to optimize cottonseed meal de-gossypol process by extrusion. [Method]The artificial neural network( ANN) was used to stimulate the degradation of free gossypol in cottonseed meal by extrusion process,and a three-layer back propagation neural network was established to predict the degradation of free gossypol. [Result] The result of 10-fold cross validation showed that the ANN with the training function as traingdx at hidden layer with eight neurons gave the smallest mean square error( MSE). ANN predicted results were very close to the experimental results with correlation coefficient( R2) of0. 994 1 and RMSE of 0. 497 1. A genetic algorithm( GA) based on the established neural network model was also used for optimizing de-gossypol process. The results of GA showed that the optimal conditions of de-gossypol were puffing temperature 131℃,water ratio 51%,rotational speed 158 r / min,and feeding speed 136 kg / h,while under this condition the degradation rate of free gossypol was 90. 50%,which was close to the predicted result of GA with the small average relative error of 1. 38%. [Conclusion]These results suggested that the GA based on a neural network model might be an excellent tool for optimizing cottonseed meal de-gossypol process.
