Dietary Biopolymers: Fermentation Potentials of a Primitive Gut Ecosystem

Nov 18, 2019 1:30pm | Event
Biodesign Institute, Auditorium

Lydia Zeibich, PhD, Research Associate, University of Bayreuth, Germany Gut microbial communities are of interest because of their importance to animal health.  The alimentary canal of the earthworm is representative of primitive gut ecosystems and is dominated by ingested microbes. Gut fermenters capable of degrading dietary biopolymers (plant- and microbe-derived) might contribute to the impact and survival of this invertebrate that enhances soil fertility and plant productivity....
