Pr Gouyon will talk about Microbiota Evolution, Competition & Cooperation


Pr Pierre-Henri Gouyon, from Museum of Natural History, Paris, France will open the congress by highlighting the evolution, competition & cooperation of cells & Microbiota.

According Pr Gouyon: “Nothing in biology makes sense except in the light of Evolution” Th. Dobzhansky stated in the mid XXth century. Indeed, our comprehension of biology lies on the theory developed by Darwin in 1859 and improved by the adjunction of genetics. Evolution proceeds by variations progressively lost or fixed through processes including chance and differential survival and/or reproductive success. The main process leading Evolution is thus the competition among different genetic entities through the differential success of the individuals carrying and reproducing them. But the fact that competition is a leading force does not imply that cooperation does not exist.

The microbiome-to-host communication affecting pregnancy and fetal growth in early postnatal life


In his lecture presented durting the 2nd World Congress on Targeting Microbiota, which will be held at Pasteur Institute on October 16-17, 2014, Pr Sven Petterson will present some of  their recent findings on the maternal microbiome affecting placenta development and function and its possible implications to handle stress later in life. 

In addition, Pr Petterson will  also present some new data on microbiome mediated mechanims regulating ketonbody production through a novel transcription factor expressed in the liver.

Uncultivated bacterial symbionts: a rich resource for drug development

JoernPielAccording Pr Joern Piel, from ETH Zurich: "Culturable bacteria provide many bioactive natural products that serve as an important basis for drug development. By extrapolation it has been proposed that the great diversity of as-yet unculturable prokaryotes represents a massive discovery resource for novel drug candidates.

Mitochondria-Microbiota Crosstalk: The Intriguing Relationship


Interestingly, due to the prokaryotic origin of mitochondria, mitochondria and microbiota share commons features. Based on an evolutionary point of view, this common origin had profound effects in term of functional interaction with the host.
