‘Characterization of the microbiome of amphibians’ skin: Ecological determinants and potential as a probiotic in emerging diseases (skinpro)’

Grants for research teams

Ecology and Conservation Biology


In this project, we will attempt to characterize the microbiome of amphibians’ skin across a broad range of environmental conditions, and to identify bacteria with potential as an antifungal probiotic that may help control or reduce the spread of ‘Bd’ in natural aquatic systems.
