  1. Develop methodology to determine if antimicrobial-agent residues bound to fecal contents are microbiologically active.
  2. Evaluate the use of current molecular biology, genomic, and proteomic technologies to determine the impact of antimicrobial-agent residues on the human-intestinal microbiota.
  3. Determine the potential of the intestinal microbiota to metabolize antimicrobial residues.
