MICROBES & HOST

The intestinal tract of humans harbours diverse and complex bacterial communities dominated by members of the phylum Firmicutes, Bacteroidetes, Proteobacteria, Actinobacteria and Verrucomicrobia.

However, the mutualistic relationships between host and bacteria, and the underlying influence of bacterial activities on host functions are still largely unknown.

Nutritional factors are also intrinsic elements of the intestinal ecosystem and interact with both host and bacterial cells.

To understand the human intestinal ecosystem and its implication in health and diseases bacteriological studies are essential.
