Models Of Biological Ecosystems

Recently, a group of scientists created a model of the human gut that can be used to study microbial interactions and butyrate production. The model predicts how families of bacteria shift and change their metabolic products, like the short chain fatty acid butyrate. The conditions in the lumen environment are like the weather of the gut and scientists can use indicators to predict the future of the intestinal habitat. The ability to have this level of insight into the gut is going to allow researchers to develop new drugs, new probiotics and make other discoveries about how gut health influences our total health.
