Featured series: Pig gut microbiota: Challenges and opportunities to improve the pig

Recently, the interest on the gut microbiome as modulator of pigs’ health largely grew. An early colonization of the gastrointestinal tract by a stable microbiome positively affects the programming of the physiological development of pigs. The processes governing the settlement and the maintenance of a balanced intestinal microbiota are not fully understood, nevertheless the Special Issue will focus on the integrated system piglet-sow-post-weaning, as a target to favor the physiological development of pigs. Piglet intervention will be presented, as well a critical review on the challenge and the opportunity of the rapid progress of the analytical tools for studies on the gut microbiota structure.

Aims and scope

Journal of Animal Science and Biotechnology is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that encompasses a wide range of research areas including animal genetics, reproduction, nutrition, physiology, biochemistry, biotechnology, feedstuffs and animal products. The journal publishes original and novel research articles and reviews mainly involved in pigs, poultry, beef cattle, cows, goats and sheep, but the studies involving aquatic and laboratory animal species that address fundamental questions related to livestock are also welcome.
