Leading experts and emerging young investigators actively involved in neurogastroenterology and digestive motility from around the world gathered at the Joint International Neurogastroenterology and Motility Meeting held in Bologna in September 2012 to discuss cutting-edge research. The meeting addressed latest findings in common conditions such as functional bowel disorders, the diagnosis and treatment of which require up-to-date knowledge in this rapidly growing area of medicine. Under This thread, you can find  summaries of 3 presentations that were given during the event. The intestinal microbiota may be considered as a whole organ in itself, and there is increasing evidence for bidirectional interaction between the gut microbiota and many physiological aspects of…

MetaHIT (METAgenomics of the Human Intestinal Tract) is a collaborative project, funded by the European Commission, gathering 15 institutes from 8 countries. It was born of the idea that, with the rapid development of sequencing technologies, researchers could imagine explore the genetic potential of human microbial companions and understand their impact on our health and well being. The microbes of the human intestine can reach up to ten trillion cells and represent a weight of two kilograms, exceeding that of our brain. They help us digest food, they synthesize vitamins and amino acids that are needed by our body, they protect us by educating the immune system to distinguish friends from…
