Applied Hologenomics in the Limborg Group

The focus of the Limborg Group is to study the molecular interactions between the microbiome domain and the respective host organisms using multi'omic methods. Their research is particularly focused on mapping key hologenomic functions of relevance to animal performance and develop more intelligent ways to boost sustainability and welfare in animal food systems by optimising microbiome functions.
