Study Detail

TitleMetagenomics detects a minimal disruption in the bovine abomasal microbiota by the parasitic nematode Ostertagia ostertagi in immune animals
Study TypeMetagenomics
Abstract Ostertagia ostertagi infections in ruminants result in impaired gastrointestinal function. Partially immune animals were developed after multiple experimental infections. These animals displayed reduced worn burdens and a slightly elevated abomasal pH upon reinfection. In this study, we characterize .. [more]
