The Pig intestinal Bacterial Collection (PiBAC)

Pigs are invaluable animals in both biomedical research and agriculture. The gut microbiota, i.e. the communities of microorganisms in their intestine, play a very important role in regulating their health. However, underlying mechanisms remain poorly described and microbiome-based applications are underdeveloped due to our still superficial knowledge about gut microbiota members. Indeed, many gut bacteria are still unknown, which hampers full understanding of microbe-host interactions.
We established the most comprehensive, publicly accessible collection of pig gut bacteria available to date, which includes 117 strains representing 110 species across 40 families and nine phyla. The taxonomic description of 38 novel taxa is provided, including 22 novel species and 16 novel genera. Detailed meta-amplicon and metagenomic surveys highlighted the host-specificity of several taxa. Functional prediction revealed a limited number of species that best represent the functional potential of pig microbiomes. Furthermore, functional insights such as new small ribosomal peptides unique to pigs with potential anti-microbial activities and detailed investigation of the metabolism of bile acids are provided.
