Reflections of the Human Gut Microbiome in the Blood Metabolome
Alpha-diversity in the gut microbiome holds many clues to understanding human health. Now those clues are more accessible because Institute for Systems Biology (ISB) researchers can predict the diversity of an individual’s gut microbiome by examining metabolites in the blood.
Join Sean Gibbons, Ph.D., Assistant Professor at ISB and a co-corresponding author on the paper, and Greg Michelotti, Ph.D., Scientific Director of Biology at Metabolon, for our webinar: Reflections of the Human Gut Microbiome in the Blood Metabolome. During this event, we will discuss the research behind this paper, and its important findings, including: How gut microbiome diversity can be measured in the bloodstream What is the optimal level of alpha-diversity to promote health How obesity impacts the gut microbiome
