    Review: Disentangling host–microbiota complexity through hologenomics

    A new review article in the journal Nature Review Genetics by HoloFood coordinators Tom Gilbert, Antton Alberdi and Morten Limborg is published. The review covers the field of hologenomics, the advantages and current limitations of such studies and how best to design a hologenomic research project.

    Review: Development and Functional Properties of Intestinal Mucus Layer in Poultry

    A new review article in the journal Frontiers in Immunology by PhD student Yada Duangnumsawang, Prof. Jürgen Zentek and Dr. Farshad Goodarzi Boroojeni from Freie Universität Berlin, explores the importance of the intestinal mucus in the poultry gut. The mucosal barrier of the gut is the first line of defence against the invasion of pathogens, supporting the colonization of beneficial bacteria and maintaining the proper environment for digestion. In spite of its great importance, little is known about the structure and functional properties of the intestinal mucus layer within the chicken gut. This review expands on our current understanding of this important intestinal mucus, the impact of age on the development of the cells that are a part of it as well as the dietary factors that impact them.

    Research Article: Salmon gut microbiota correlates with disease infection status: potential for monitoring health in farmed animals

    MSc student Davide Bozzi and researchers and industry partners from the HoloFood project have published a new research article on monitoring salmon health in response to disease and treatment to disease within aquaculture. The study, entitled 'Salmon gut microbiota correlates with disease infection status: potential for monitoring health in farmed animals' was published in Animal Microbiome Journal, and was a collaborative effort between academic and industry partners of the consortium.
