Rowett-INRA 2018 will be the 11th joint symposium on gut microbiology
organised by the Rowett Institute, University of Aberdeen, and l'Institut
National de la Recherche Agronomique (INRA), Theix, Clermont-Ferrand.
The overall aim of the conference is to promote understanding of the role of the complex microbial ecosystems present in the digestive tract of man and animals, in maintaining health of the host. This includes elucidating links between the microbial ecology of the digestive tract and the roles of specific genes and microbial products in the interplay between micro-organisms, between micro-organisms and their hosts, and any effect of the host’s diet. The conference is of interest to those working to improve human and animal health and nutrition through manipulation of the microbiota.
Conference topics will include:
Linking the diet, microbiota and intestinal health
Microbiome manipulations for animal health and production
Establishing the links between the microbiota and disease
The microbiome as a reservoir for novel compounds
- Communicating Science
