Analyzing bird serum for antibodies against the bacteria responsible for Lyme disease, Borrelia burgdorferi

Minimal data exists for the analysis of bird antibodies against Lyme disease. If birds show higher antibody titers, it suggests they are potentially a “bigger” player in disease transmission, considering it means they have been infected with it previously. It also is possible that their antibodies might provide protection against Lyme disease with is something potentially applicable for human treatment in the future. Currently, I have hundreds of bird serum samples and just need to analyze them. I have preliminary data at least suggesting Robbins can be tested.
