Ph.D. 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 achieve our objective we will use pigs and poultry as an experimental organism.
  • Monitor their growth and health status, mostly focusing on the gut microbial ecology through NGS technology mainly Illumina MiSeq 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.
