About This Project

Mass mortality events (MMEs) present an important threat to the survival of the Saiga antelopes in Kazakhstan and Mongolia. While certain microbes have been identified as prominent causes in saiga MMEs, the triggers for the invasions remain unknown. Through extensive sampling across multiple years, we will investigate the possible role of microbiome perturbations in these incidents. Improved understanding of the mechanisms behind saiga MMEs may help us prevent future incidents.
