Human Gut Microbiota : from structure to functions

Herve BlottiereDr. Hervé Blottière from INRA, Micalis Institute and Metagenopolis, Université Paris-Saclay, France will present his study related to "Human Gut Microbiota : from structure to functions" during the 5th Targeting Microbiota World Congress 2017.

According to him: "The intestinal microbiota is of great complexity. The metagenomic approach has allowed rapid advancement in characterizing the genetic and genomic diversity of our microbiota. The exhaustive sequencing of the intestinal microbiota of hundreds of healthy individuals, but also that of patients suffering from various pathologies demonstrated the importance of a symbiosis between the microbiota and its host. Dysbiosis of this ecosystem was associated with several diseases, revealing bacterial species as signatures of the patient's condition. An innovative functional metagenomic approach has been implemented allowing to identify bacterial genes and molecules / metabolites involved in this cross talk. The cutting-edge characterization of our other genome, our metagenome, remains a crucial step in the full understanding of the human body."
