The position in epigenetics includes building up and establishing an epigenetics platform at ANIS, based, first of all, on own equipment but also through collaborations. The research focus shall mainly be to reveal the role of modified gene expression through epigenetic regulation that is caused by a number of factors within ANIS’ key research areas, such as nutrition, management, environmental conditions and disease events. A period of particular interest for such studies is e.g. the pregnancy period during embryo and fetal development, studying such types of exposures and their role.
The position in high throughput sequencing and bioinformatics has major emphasis on bioinformatics analysis of next-generation sequencing data, i.e. sequence diversity analysis and whole genome assembly across animal species. The research focus will e.g. be on the great potential in new knowledge concerning the gastrointestinal microbiota in relation to host health and diseases. Furthermore, knowledge regarding the microbiota development and changes is required to support future sustainable and robust livestock production and the challenge of reducing antibiotic use.
The position in the ruminant microbiome and its function is dedicated specifically to the ruminant microbial community and metabolism. The research focus will e.g. be on the great potential in new knowledge concerning the rumen microbiota in relation to degradation of feedstuffs, digestive processes and rumen metabolism, host feed intake and nutrient utilisation with the aim to secure a sustainable production from healthy and high performance cows with a low environmental and climate impact.
