The Future is Bright for Microbiome Metabolites and Drugs Derived From Probiotics

Some of the claims made about Probiotics can be hard to believe, and often even harder to reliably prove. However, the science surrounding the development of these products is exciting, and some of the more extraordinary claims can be quantified.

Here a few examples from some of the presentations at the Microbiome & Prebiotics Series: USA:

5 Ways Sleep And Microbiome Are Interrelated With Immunity And Cognition

The effect of sleep on the microbiome of the host has been a topic of interest among researchers for the past several years. Studies have yielded opposing results in how short sleep affects the microbiome. While some showed a significant change in Firmicutes to Bacteroidetes ratio, others found no microbial change following short-term sleep restriction.

Understanding the Role of the Gut Microbiome in NAFLD

NAFLD is the primary contributor to chronic liver disease worldwide with incident rates of 20-30% in western countries and 5-18% in Asia. The discovery of early stage biomarkers for patients with the reversible form of the disease is therefore a research priority. Recent work has shown perturbation of the microbiome and specific microbiome-associated metabolites contribute to the phenotype of NAFLD.

A recap of the Microbiome & Probiotics Series: Europe

The Microbiome & Probiotics Series: Europe is one of the highlights of our calendar year. Kristin Neumann, author & founder of MyMicrobiome was one of our speakers on the cosmeceuticals track and was kind enough to write the following recap of the event, for people who weren’t able to attend this year. You can read the original article here.

A new kind of pheromone to control agricultural pests

Karl Cameron Schiller is co-founder of Pheronym, a Davis-based agriculture biotech start-up using a new kind of pheromone from microscopic roundworms called nematodes to control agricultural pests. We asked him about his work.

Improving crop production through understanding the soil microbiome

Sarah Strauss is a soil microbial ecologist at the University of Florida. Her interests lie in understanding the interactions between soil microbes and crops, with the hope that improved understanding will benefit crop production.

We spoke to her about her work ahead of her presentation at the 4th Partnerships in Biocontrol, Biostimulants & Microbiome Congress: USA.

The interactions between soil microbes and plants are still very much uncharted territory, which makes it an exciting area of study. This is especially the case for the interactions between soil microbes and crops in agricultural systems. For example, we know that there are bacteria and fungi that can influence plant growth or soil nutrient availability, but most of those studies have been done with only a few plant species or under very specific growing conditions. Much of my research is looking at what interactions are occurring between specific crops in field conditions – and how those interactions might differ based on specific conditions or crops in a farmer’s field.
