Top List: Trending in microbiome: From comprehensive culture workflows, to novel biotherapeutics, and microbial characterization

Discover the latest technologies and techniques that are revolutionizing microbiome research

03 Sep 2019

In recent years, research into the human microbiome, our personal communities of diverse microorganisms, has thrived. However, when it comes to the true importance of these microbes, there is still a lot to be uncovered. In this article, we cover the latest advancements in microbiome research, from the development of biotherapeutics to counter inflammatory bowel disease, to groundbreaking discoveries in the world of gut microbes. Plus, find out how Eppendorf’s bioprocessing systems can help support your microbiome research.
