Benjamin is a postgraduate student currently undertaking his PhD under the supervision of A/Prof Athol Klieve and Prof. Phil Hugenholtz. 

Benjamin’s project aims to identify the mode of action in which the probiotic Bacillus amyloliquefaciens H57 benefits domesticated ruminants. This is hoped to be achieved by studying changes in the rumen microbial community using an integrated ‘omics’ analysis of metagenomics, metatranscriptomics and metaproteomics. 

Qualifications: 
2008, B.Sc, Griffith University
2010, B. AppSc(Hons), The University of Queensland

Evaluation of Bacillus amyloliquefaciens H57 as a probiotic in livestock

Bacillus amyloliquefaciens strain H57 was initially isolated for its ability to inhibit the growth of fungi that causes livestock feed to spoil.
