Towards a Better Understanding of Poultry Intestinal Microbiome through Metagenomic and Microarray Studies
by Wei, Shan, Ph.D., The Ohio State University, 2013, 164; 10115767
Abstract (Summary)

The objectives of my study were to i) achieve a comprehensive understanding of the intestinal microbiomes of broiler chickens and turkeys, ii) establish a global phylogenetic framework of bacterial diversity of this microbiome, iii) examine how litter conditions and bacitracin (as a model antimicrobial growth promoter) affect colonization and abundance of common enteric pathogens in broiler chickens, and iv) develop a habitat-specific phylochip that can support comprehensive studies on poultry intestinal microbiome.
