  • Research lines
  • Characterize the microbiome (bacterial, fungal and archaeal) of porcine gut and faecal samples using Deep-sequencing techniques. Faecal and intestinal samples from pig reared in different conditions coming from studies done by an other ESR working on other MANNA projects to compare 16S sequencing and deep sequencing for their informative value about the entire gut microbiome and to characterize the microbiome under the different feeding conditions applied in the pig experiments. Experiments on relatedness of gut and faecal samples profiles of the porcine microbiome will also be carried out. Besides metabolomics and proteomics will be applied and data will be evaluated to identify biomarkers for innovative breeding strategies.
