Topical Collection "Feature Papers in Gut Microbiota"
Prof. Dr. Martin Von Bergen
As follows from the title, this Topical Collection “Feature Papers in Gut Microbiota” aims to collect high quality research articles, short communications, and review articles in all the fields of Gut Microbiota.
For the selected works of this section on Gut Microbiota, we will focus on research questions that address the microbial ecology in the community, the functionalities of members of the microbiota, the metabolic and immunological interaction with the host and the role of the microbiota in human diseases.
Topics include, but are not limited to:
- Structure and function of the microbiota
- Microbial community genetics, transcriptomics, proteomics and metabolomics
- Interaction within the microbiota
- Metabolic interaction with the host
- Inflammatory diseases
- Interaction with the immune system
- Microbial biodegradation of nutrients and xenobiotics
- Microbial ecology
- Microbial functions in the different habitats within the gut
- Metabolic flux analysis
- Analysis of functionalities by stable isotope probing (DNA, RNA and protein)
- Model systems for studying microbiome biology
- Novel technologies for the analysis of structure and function of the microbiota
