Acquisition of an automated platform (OmniLog ID Plus system)

PI: Hilario Mantovani


Mantovani joined the UW–Madison faculty as an assistant professor of animal and dairy sciences in March of 2022, specializing in rumen microbial physiology. His position is funded by the Dairy Innovation Hub.

Mantovani’s project will use a Biolog OmniLog Plus ID System, a technology that can identify over 2,500 species of aerobic and anaerobic bacteria, yeasts, and fungi, to decipher the interplay between gastrointestinal tract microbes and host systems in order to develop microbiome-derived technologies such as bioactive molecules, probiotics, and inoculants.
