International Scientific Conference on Gastro-Intestinal Microbial Ecology
The International Scientific Conference on Gastro-Intestinal Microbial Ecology 2010 - GME2010 - was held during 9th-11th November 2010, in the university city of Kosice, Slovakia.
The conference's goal was to provide a scientific forum for scientist and researchers who were committed to understand the complexity of the gastro-intestinal ecosystem and its interactions with the host in health or disease.
Leading scientists presented and discussed current advances in the research of gut microbiota and gut microbial ecosystem. The scientific programme aimed to advance the understanding of microbial diversity of the gastro-intestinal ecosystem by presenting new insights in its complex balance or imbalance, and discuss ways to modulate the gut microbiota to the benefit of the host by means of bioactive substances.
New research results and insights were conferred by leading scientist from industry and academia within the fields of general microbiology, analytical methods, microbiomics, host-microbe interaction, biofilms and signalling. In addition novel approaches, methods and scientifically solid ideas, visions were presented as well.
