gut microbiota research, microbiota-host interactions
Area 3 (‘Society’): Improve on-farm practices to enhance consumer acceptability and address societal challenges associated with animal welfare, product quality and safety, biodiversity and provision of ecosystem services
We are interested in the impact of food, animal genetics and environmental factors on the gut microbiota and the reverse effects of the microbial activities to the host. We are using next-generation sequencing, metaproteomics and metabolomics to study the microbiota. We can also offer animal experiments for rumen fistulated diary cows, ileal fistulated pigs and chickens.
We are a public university with focus on agricultural sciences.
