What’s It All About- Why the Microbiome Movement?
Recent breakthroughs in DNA sequencing, metagenomic analysis, and computational techniques have given scientists new insight into the composition and function of the human microbiome. It is now well established that the gut microbiome plays a critical role in regulating the immune system, extracting energy from food, modulating metabolism and even influencing psychological behavior.
This increased demand for microbiome-based therapeutics also extends to animals. As the animal population increases amidst a booming demand for meat, and the practice of treating animals with Antibiotic Growth Promoters slows with growing regulatory pressures, the microbiome may offer breakthrough targets and solutions for therapeutics, in-feed alternatives and diagnostics within industrial farming and companion healthcare.
5 Ways to Harness the Microbiome within Animal Health:
The inaugural Microbiome Movement – Animal Health Summit is part of the successful “Microbiome Movement” series, a dedicated portfolio of events specifically designed to help translate cutting edge microbiome research into commercially viable products across pharmaceutical, agricultural, and nutritional R&D.
