UMCW06 - Microbial communities: current approaches and open challenges

The infant gut microbiome develops remarkably predictably, with pioneer species rapidly colonizing the gut after birth, followed by an ordered succession of other microbes. The gut microbiota is vital to infant health, yet to date the forces that drive these predictable microbiome dynamics have remained largely unknown. Here I will discuss our recent work, first identifying the specific microbial interactions driving microbiome assembly within one particular infant cohort, then identifying general ecological rules governing microbiome assembly more broadly.
