The Core Facilities enable the implementation of ZIEL’s research areas. They provide platform technologies for microbiome analysis in the form of next-generation sequencing and gnotobiology (Microbiome Core Facility), intervention studies and human phenotyping (Human Studies Core Facility), and food processing technologies (Food Processing/ WZW, Fraunhofer IVV and ZIEL Cooperation Core Facility).

With the help of the Core Facilities, the ZIEL provides a unique platform for researching the links between food and health in humans.
