This Thursday Anne-Marie Lacroix, a graduate student in Dr. Surette’s lab, will talk about how in this paper (Claus et al., 2011 mBio 2:e00271-10) the metabolic profiles from several organ systems changed upon exposure of axenic mice to a regular non-sterile environment for 20 days. Researchers paired this with taxonomic profiling to correlate individual bacterial groups with metabolic changes in the host, in particular metabolism of xenobiotic compounds. Join us in MDCL 2230 at 3:30pm for some interesting discussion.
