Explainer videos

On this page you will find explainer videos about our hologenomic approach on studying evolution from a holistic perspective on hosts and its microbes, new technologies within our field of research as well as some of the large projects within the Center for Evolutionary Hologenomics.

In this explainer video you meet Assistant Professor Ostaizka Aizpurua and Associate Professor Sandra Breum Andersen as they explain their exciting research at Center for Evolutionary Hologenomics. Both researchers use new exciting technologies: Gut-on-a-chip and organoids respectively to answer their interesting questions within hologenomics.

What is the 3D'omics project?

In this first explainer video for the 3D'omics project, we introduce the 3D'omics EU H2020 project at Center for Evolutionary Hologenomics as well as the projects aims.

Phages to fight bacterial infections

A team of researchers from England, Scotland, Norway, and Denmark have joined forces to develop a safe and efficient phage therapy approach to control the bacteria Pasteurella in Atlantic Salmon farms. Employing phages is a promising alternative to antibiotics and will help the aquaculture industry to become more sustainable. In this video, the researchers behind the project reveal how phages can help fight diseases not only in fish but also in swine and poultry. 

FindingPheno: Multi-omics data analysis for genotype-phenotype associations.

The FindingPheno project is developing a new computational framework for multi-omic datasets, providing the tools to better understand how host-microbiome interactions can affect growth and other phenotypical traits. The end goal of FindingPheno is to find the true drivers of phenotype in food production systems to unlock the full potential of microbiome interventions for health and sustainability.

HoloFood: A novel hologenomic approach to sustainable food production

The HoloFood project is a H2020 Innovation Action working on a hologenomic approach to understand the impact animals and their microbiomes have as one unit in response to environmental factors and better feeds. Optimising and understanding this relationship will lead to better and more sustainable food practices.

Center for Evolutionary Hologenomics: The Hologenomic Approach

Professor Tom Gilbert and colleagues introduce the Center for Evolutionary Hologenomics and our hologenomic approach to life's big questions.
