The production of animals for human consumption can be optimised by modulating animal-associated gut microbiomes. These gut microbiomes can be manipulated through the use of feed additives such as prebiotics and probiotics.
HoloFood was a Horizon 2020 funded project that used a holistic approach to improve the efficiency of food production systems by deciphering the biomolecular and physiological processes triggered by incorporating feed additives and novel sustainable feeds in farmed animals.
HoloFood ended in June 2023. But the resulting resources are freely available! See below.
The practical guide to holo-omics is a compilation of methodological procedures to generate, analyse and integrate holo-omic data, i.e., multi-omic data jointly generated from hosts and associated microbial communities such as those used for the HoloFood project.
Computational workflows used in the processing of HoloFood datasets.
The HoloFood Data Portal is a novel database, web resource, and federating Application Programming Interface (API) providing access to all of the project’s archived biomolecular datasets.
Materials and presentations from the HoloFood training course held in September 2022. Organised by EMBL-EBI with trainers from UCPH, NTNU, and EHU/UPV. The course covers the generation and application of large-scale holo-omic data sets, such as those produced within the HoloFood project.
