We all have a second brain, located in our gut, which influences our mood and even our well-being. It consists on hundreds of million of neurons, more than the spinal cord has, and it is embedded in the walls of our gut. Its main job is transmitting information from the microbiota to the brain and the other way round. And…

For a long time, babies were thought to be born germ-free. Now we know they carry some bacteria and that the delivery mode can influence the microbiota they are starting life with and even their health. Researcher José Clemente, assistant professor at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City, investigates whether we can revert the effects…

Liping Zhao and colleagues, in their recent paper on a dietary intervention for simple and genetic obesity, discussed evidence for the existence of gut microbiota 'guilds': bacterial genomes within the gut ecosystem that responded to the dietary intervention as a group. Zhao further explains to GMFH editors, "Guilds are functional groups formed by different species in an ecosystem. Members in…

For Dr. Vanni Bucci, assistant professor of computational biology at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, new treatments are not the only way to make progress in medicine. He believes doctors can greatly improve care by making better use of treatments that already exist -- even common ones like antibiotics. Bucci, a chemical/environmental engineer by training, builds mathematical models to describe…
