The Workshop Mouse Microbiota will take place on 26 – 27 March 2015 at the Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência, Oeiras, Portugal.
Dissecting the dialogue between the host and its microbiota is an essential element of modern organism-centered biology. Understanding this complex relationship requires specific equipment and skills. On the first afternoon we will review some of the most advanced findings addressing the interaction of the microbiota and mouse genotypes to produce a range of phenotypes. On the second day, we will address the infrastructure needs and experimental strategies required for the development of this thriving research field.
