Glyphosate treatment of crops: a sustainable strategy?


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.


  • 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.
