Robustness in quantifying the abundance of antimicrobial resistance genes in pooled faeces samples from batches of slaughter pigs using metagenomics analysis

  22 February 2021

With the continued spread of antimicrobial resistance in animals, it is important to assess its occurrence throughout a microbiome quantitatively in order to evaluate significantly affecting factors e.g. antimicrobial usage. Metagenomics methods makes it possible to measure the abundance of antimicrobial resistance genes in complex samples such as pooled faeces samples from batches of slaughter pigs. This study was performed to determine; the random error in antimicrobial resistance in pooled samples from batches pigs at slaughter, and the measurement error from the metagenomics processes.
