Webinar Overview

As recent studies demonstrate, microbiota are key biologic contributors to many aspects of mammalian physiology and behavior; therefore, their influence on research model phenotypes (and subsequent impact on study results) can be considerable. This is compelling the biomedical science community to ask:

  • How can we define and create the precise microbiome consortium researchers need?
  • Once they are created, how can we avoid contamination, or “microbial drift”?
  • What can be done to monitor germ-free animals and those with a customized flora?

Join us as we answer these pressing questions and more in this informative webinar.
