 Analyzing DNA Sequences in Bird Poop may Prevent Bird-Airplane Collisions
The secret behind avoiding collisions between airplanes and birds may lie in analyzing the DNA sequences in their poop.

Researchers have found that the DNA of birds' poop will reveal the food that attracts the birds to the airport and reducing the food resources would help lessen the number of birds hovering around, the Huffington Post reported.

The study suggested that the airports must practice rodent control and place grass species that are less hospitable to tasty insects.

The cost the airline industry suffers due 'bird strike' is approximately 1 billion dollars per year.
