Rumen metagenomics and enteric methane emission reduction

Profiling rumen microbiome and assessment of nutritional interventions to reduce enteric methane emissions.

Using our state-of-the-art sheep production facilities and climate chambers, we can conduct studies to:

  • Assess the impact of heat stress on rumen microbiota
  • Evaluate the ruminal microbial community diversity on different diet and temperature regimen by metagenome profiling
  • Assess the effect of various feed types/additives on the methanogenic population in sheep.
