Metagenomics approach to delineate the impact of antibiotic administration route on gut microbial changes and antimicrobial resistome in nursery piglets

This study was conducted in piglets to compare in-feed vs. in-water administrations of chlortetracycline (CTC) and or tiamulin on fecal prevalence and AMR profiles of gut commensals (Escherichia coli, Enterococcus spp.) and foodborne pathogens (Campylobacter and Salmonella) in nursery piglets.
