PhD project: 

Glyphosate treatment of crops: a sustainable strategy?

OBJECTIVE:

To investigate if glyphosate residues in genetically modified (GM) feed crops like Roundup ready soybeans and desiccated grain cause livestock health problems and so the use of glyphosate is a sustainable strategy for weed control.

EXPERIMENTAL APPROACH:

  • To achive our objective we will use pigs and hens as an experimental organism.
  • Analyze their health status and growth using NGS technology mainly Illumiona Miseg NGS platform.
  • Short chain  fatty acid analysis using gas chromatography (FID-based).
  • Specific quantitative PCR (qPCR) analysis.
  • For bioinformatics we will mostly rely on Qiime and R software.
