Zach and Andrew present on the urobiome at Research Day

The urobiome was on full display at @OSUVetCollege Research Day! Andrew McGlynn shared research on longitudinal dynamics in the healthy canine urobiome. Zach Lewis evaluated varying urine volumes and dilutions for 16S and metagenomics – all key foundations for low biomass urine studies.

Andrew and Ryan’s paper “All about Urine” just hit biorXiv!

Andrew McGlynn and Ryan Mrofchak recently released a new manuscript resulting from the Canine Urine Project (CUP) that analyzes urine samples from healthy dogs over 12 timepoints. Andrew and Ryan assessed urine pH, specific gravity, proteins, culture, and resistance profiles. Check out the preprint here. Bravo to the entire team who worked hard on collecting, analyzing, and writing us this project!!
