Infectious diseases of animals is a highly interdisciplinary subject that requires studying multiple disciplines, in particular, biological knowledge of the pathogen, a statistical description of the available data, and a mathematical framework for prediction. Microbiota harbored at different anatomic sites across the animal body. These microbial communities differ in microbial composition and function. Several factors significantly impact host-microbe interactions, such as host physiology, environmental exposures, etc. Over the past decade, understanding microbial ecology fortifies the ability to diagnose or predict disease risk in the absence of a complete understanding of causal mechanisms. Furthermore, several studies have been reported that microbiota is an important reservoir for antimicrobial resistance genes (ARGs). Administration of antimicrobials can disrupt colonization resistance, which leads to colonization by pathogens, increased load, dissemination of ARGs (i.e., resistome), and, eventually, clinically significant infections. However, the intersection of infectious diseases and antimicrobial resistance represents an important knowledge gap.

This Research Topic aims to focus on discovery and innovation in various aspects related to infectious diseases, microbial ecology, and antimicrobial resistance dynamics in food animals.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- Infectious disease dynamics
- The microbial ecology dynamics, including environment-microbe and host-microbe interaction
- Antimicrobial Resistance dynamics, including the intersection of Infectious diseases and microbial ecology dynamics at the antimicrobial resistance.

Keywords: microbial ecology, antimicrobial resistance, food animals, environment-microbe interaction, host-microbe interaction
