Infectious bursal disease (IBD) has proved to be a major challenge for poultry farmers. This is an immunosuppressive disease, which makes birds more vulnerable for other infections at an early age. The disease is caused by infectious bursal disease virus (IBDV), which belongs to the family Birnaviridae that is characterized by a bisegmented dsRNA genome (Kibenge et al., 1988). The virus attacks the B lymphocytes residing in bursa of Fabricius (BF) resulting in severe immunosuppression and ultimately other acute infections with high mortality. Because of this, new sensitive methods for viral detection from the infected tissue and its characterization are required.
