Microbial ecology is a focus for GeneCology research. Researchers are actively engaged in:

  • pathogens impacting on both land and water based farming
  • use of probiotics for aquaculture
  • microbial source tracking
  • microbial indicators of climate change and environmental pollution
  • identification of virulence genes in anti-biotic resistant populations
  • development of sensitive epidemiological and molecular tools
  • behaviour, environmental and pathological interactions between host, bacterial and fungal pathogens
  • bacteriophage
  • termite-gut mcinrobial symbiosis
  • microbial interactions with marine macro-organisms 
  • bio-degradation and bio-deterioration of agricultural products and waste
  • gut microbiota in health and disease
