TEDx Delft: My microbial self & I

TEDx Delft: My microbial self & I | Human Biome | Scoop.it
We live in a microbial world; both from an evolutionary, biochemical, and an ecological perspective. Our bodies are no exception. The mammalian gut harbors microorganisms (the microbiota) of vast phylogentic, genomic, and metabolic diversity, and recent years have seen a rapid development in the techniques for studying these complex microbial ecosystems. It is increasingly apparent that the GIT microbiota plays an intricate role in human health and disease. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.

Gut microbes and health : Nature : Nature Publishing Group

Now is an exciting time to study the microbes that are associated with the body — the human microbiota. Although the beneficial effects of some of these microbes have been documented for more than a century, only with recent technological advances can the composition of the diverse microbial communities be described and compared within and between individuals. Two major funding initiatives — the US Human Microbiome Project and the European Metagenomics of the Human Intestinal Tract — are well under way, and with the contributions of individual pioneer research groups, we are beginning to understand what constitutes a healthy microbiota and how changes in its structure correlate with and affect health and disease. The more we learn about these microbes, the more we realize that they are influencing many aspects of our physiology.

"...two key programs that helped jumpstart this field are coming to an end, and follow-up efforts have yet to be put in place. It's also unclear whether industry, government regulators, or the public are ready to take microbiome insights into the clinic. That was the news this week in Paris as 650 researchers gathered for the third annual meeting sponsored by the International Human Microbiome Consortium, whose members include the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH), European Commission (EC), and..."

Ex vivo systems to study host–microbiota interactions in the gastrointestinal tract

Ex vivo systems to study host–microbiota interactions in the gastrointestinal tract | Human Biome | Scoop.it
It is increasingly apparent that the microbial ecosystems in the mammalian gastrointestinal tract play an intricate role in health and disease. There is a growing interest in the development of targeted strategies for modulating health through the modification of these microbiota. Ecologists are faced with the challenge of understanding the structure and function of ecosystems, the component parts of which interact with each other in complex and diffuse ways. The human gut microbiota, with its high species richness and diversity (up to 1000 bacterial species per individual) including members of all three domains of life, situated in the dynamic environment of the gastrointestinal tract, is probably among the most complex ecosystems on this planet. In order to elucidate the mechanistic foundations, and physiological significance, of beneficial or pathogenic relationships between the gut microbiota and their hosts, researchers require tractable model ecosystems that allow to recapitulate and investigate host–microbe and microbe–microbe interactions. This review discusses ex vivo gastrointestinal models systems that can be used to gain mechanistic insights into the emergent properties of the host–microbial superorganism.
