Book Review: Animal Models for Microbiome Research

This book is the outcome of Workshop on Animal Models for Microbiome Research: Advancing Basic Science and Translational Research, hosted by the Institute for Laboratory Animal Research (ILAR). Microbiome and germ-free researchers James Fox, Joseph Newsome, Wendy Garrett, Jeffrey Gordon and Vincent Young organized the workshop, with the following goals:

  1. Improve the depth and breadth of analysis of microbial communities using various model organisms
  2. Address the challenges of standardization and biological variability inherent in gnotobiotic animals-based research
  3. Examine the predictability and translatability of preclinical studies to humans
  4. Discuss strategies for expanding the infrastructure and tools for conducting studies in these types of model
