Project

HoloRuminant

Goal: Elucidating the role of ruminant-associated microbiomes and their interplay with the host animal in early life and throughout fundamental life events (e.g. weaning, feed transitions and lactation) that are known to affect health, welfare and environmental efficiency in ruminant production systems. Rooted in the holobiont concept – the host and its associated microbiomes as a functional unit – HoloRuminant will use a holistic multi-omics approach to characterise the establishment and dynamics of microbiomes.
