Study Detail

Title454-amplicon pyrosequencing of porcine faecal microbiota over a 16 day period reveal that complex diets, specifically containing dietary fibre, promote a more diverse faecal bacterial community.
Study TypeOther
Abstract Cereal soluble dietary fibres in the form of arabinoxylan and mixed-linkage glucans were fed to pigs to examine the resulting changes to the bacterial community profiles and the rate at which these changes occur. The microbial assemblage was sequenced and characterised using 454 amplicon pyrosequenc .. [more]
