Parallel studies are currently being staged, from a high level, to assess the sanitary level of the pig supply chain in the regional and extra-regional context, with a particular focus on the identification of ESBL strains of Escherichia coli, and on the other, to assess gut microbiota biodiversity within different animal species by analysing and estimating possible interactions on the human microbiota (bifidobacteria population).
