Call for Proposals – Understanding Microbiomes to Improve Animal Health and Human Nutrition

Researchers are beginning to understand the integral role that microbial communities play in the health, productivity, and environmental impact of livestock systems. The purpose of this RFP is to create a community resource that will contribute understanding toward the role of the microbiome in human nutrition and animal health through the synthesis, implementation, and analysis of livestock and human microbiomes associated with enteric pathogens.  Humans and livestock share a number of enteric pathogens that decrease overall health of the host. Microbiome data can help advance our understanding of the role of these pathogens in overall microbial community composition.

Attention: Focus Countries–Nepal and Uganda
