BaseClear has years of experience in microbiome analysis, including the analysis of the microbiota of animals. Veterinary researchers, feed manufacturers, animal breeders and animal pharmaceutical companies have a growing interest in animal microbiome research. Animal microbiome research focuses on studying the microbial populations that inhabit animals, in order to determine their role in health, disease, and development.

We routinely organise expert meetings wherein scientists and researchers meet, share and discuss microbiome projects, challenges and opportunities. On Thursday November 28th, we are once again organising an 1-day expert-meeting titled:
