Project Title: 
Role of Gut Microbiome in Host Health and Nutrition

This lab studies the factors that shape the composition and function of the microbiome associated to animals and humans. To that end, they apply a system-level view of microbes and host, using meta-omic techniques (metagenomics, metabolomics, transcriptomics), along with bioinformatic, machine learning, and statistical tools. This approach is used to understand how the microbiome interacts with the host, influencing host nutrition, health, and evolution.

Research by this group was featured on the MSI website in July 2022: The Gut Mycobiome in Primates.
