Pig microbiome

Screen Shot 2014-06-19 at 11.04.38 PMCharacterization of the fecal microbiome in different swine groups by high-throughput sequencing – Soo-Je Park – Anaerobe

“High-throughput 16S rRNA gene-based pyrosequencing was used to identify the possible core microorganisms in the gut of swine groups.”

“To be concluded, influences of dietary sources on intestinal microflora and volatile fatty acids seemed to be related to fibre components, which possibly led to the changes in intestinal mucosal digestive physiology and thus affect production parameters of fattening pigs.”

Chicken microbiome

Jaime D. Babot – Research in Veterinary Science

“Based on the natural benefits of the indigenous microbiota, lactic acid bacteria (LAB) from poultry origin were isolated from hens and broilers intestine, and their probiotic potential was further studied.”

Food microbiology
