New Research on Maintaining Complex Gut Microbiota in Mouse Models

An increased interest in studies involving the microbiota requires animal models that appropriately mimic the extremely complex normal gut microbiota. Differences in rodent models can have a negative impact on a study’s reproducibility.

On July 4, 2018, researchers at the University of Missouri, University of California, Davis, and University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill published a paper titled, “Development of outbred CD1 mouse colonies with distinct standardized gut microbiota profiles for use in complex microbiota targeted studies,” in the journal Nature.
