Mandrills and microbes II: the gut microbiome

The primate gastro-intestinal tract is home to trillions of micro-organisms, which provide their host with essential benefits. In addition to aiding digestion and producing vitamins, gut micro-organisms play a crucial role in the host immune response, protecting the host from infection. Read more

Equine microbiome testing: development of strategies to enable routine microbiome diagnostics in the horse

Both animals and humans have a complex and wide-ranging set of microorganisms present in the gut. The intricate and multifaceted interactions between these resident microorganisms have been linked with disease risks, health preservation, immunity, and therapeutic opportunities in both human and veterinary medicine.

The effect of environmental metals on the spread of antimicrobial resistance genes in the stickleback skin microbiome

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a major threat to humans, animals, and our environment. Often associated with overuse of antibiotics in human and livestock dominated environments, its wider environmental occurrence is poorly understood. Read more

Phenology shifts, avian microbiomes, and fitness consequences

Variation in the gut microbiome is associated with multiple traits in mammals, ranging from behavioural and neurotypical traits to immunity, disease resistance and metabolism. Read more

The social side of symbionts: exploring bidirectional links between the gut microbiome and social behaviour in mammals

This project is part of the. DPhil in Biology at the University of Oxford. Symbiotic microbial communities can have pervasive impacts on the biology of their hosts, and the diverse microbiomes that reside in the mammalian gut are no exception. Read more

PBPK modelling in Obesity based on Considerations of Host-Microbiome Interplay

Despite current knowledge of contributors to inter-individual variability in pharmacokinetics (i.e. drug enzyme and transporter genotypes, age etc.), heterogeneity in drug responses still confounds individualization of drug regimens. Read more

Unravelling the global microbiome of crop plants to improve sustainability and food security

  Research Group: Midlands Integrative Biosciences Training Partnership (MIBTP)
Plants live in close association with complex communities of microbes which together constitute their ‘microbiome’. The microbiome interacts with the plant in numerous ways; some microbes are beneficial and promote plant growth, while others are pathogens which reduce crop yields. Read more

The microbiome of the beehive as an indicator of honeybee pathogens (Ref FHMS - DTP - 06 BIO)

Infectious diseases affecting bees pose a serious threat to both biodiversity and food security. Many honeybee pathogens are shared by other wild bee species and crops are experiencing considerable yield gaps owing to insufficient pollination. Read more

Improving ageing markers in the gut microbiome for healthy ageing (Ref FHMS - FF - 09 PSY)

The number of older adults worldwide is expected to double to 1.5 billion people by 2050 (United Nations 2019), however increasing numbers of older adults are living out their later lives in poor health. Read more
