  • In this episode of At the Meeting honoring Dr. Bob Morrison, the group discusses the swine gut microbiome and what is considered a good or bad microbiome.
  • Show hosts Dr. Montse Torremorell, Dr. Tom Wetzell, and Dr. Gordon Spronk, chat with Dr. Fernando Leite, Boehringer Ingelheim's enteric technical manager. Dr. Leite provides an overview of what a microbiome is and how it is a new and important area of research in animal health. With next generation sequencing techniques to help understand what is going on inside pig microbiomes, researchers hope to come up with new and more effective ways to treat diseases.
