Dr. Yeoman's research exploits molecular techniques to examine the microbial ecology associated with animal systems. His specific focus is on the microbial ecosystems of the gut and their role in health, nutrition and performance, and those occupying the vaginal tract and their relation to reproductive performance and neonatal health. Dr. Yeoman believes that microbial ecosystems have an evolved ecology principally governed by their symbioses, as is evident in many systems. Obtaining a system-wide understanding of these relationships is fundamental to improving human health, livestock systems, the interactions of each with the environment.
