Role of the microbiome in inflammatory bowel diseases: using multi-omics datase

Knut Rudi Microbiota

The microbial ecosystem residing in the human gastrointestinal tract plays an intimate role in the development and well-being of their human host. The gut commensal microbes reside in synergy with the host, undertaking wide range of functions that benefits themselves and their host. These host-associated microbial communities that share different functional genes between distinct bacterial species are increasingly associated with horizontal gene transfer (HGT).

During Targeting Microbiota World Congress, Dr Knut Rudi from the Norwegian University of Life Sciences will discuss the current status and future developments in their knowledge about the infant gut microbiota mobilome will be discussed.
