Bifidobacteria and Their Role in the Human Gut Microbiota

Bifidobacteria were originally isolated by Tissier at the beginning of the last century from infant stool samples and until now 57 (sub)species have been included in this bacterial genus  Bifidobacterial biology has captured increasing attention in the last 15 years due to widespread interest in using bifidobacteria as health promoting microorganisms, i.e., known as probiotics, in the food industry. Significant efforts have been expended to dissect the genetics as well as molecular mechanisms underlying the probiotic action of bifidobacteria. This has led to the establishment of a new scientific discipline called probiogenomics, which is providing new insights into the diversity and evolution of bifidobacteria and to the identification of their health-promoting effector molecules

Furthermore, thanks to recent discoveries about the microbial diversity of the human gut, we have started to achieve detailed insights about the composition of the bifidobacterial communities in this complex ecosystem and to understand the intricate relationship with their host as well as with the other members of the gut microbiota. Altogether, this knowledge will be crucial in order to develop novel bacterial therapeutic strategies based on bifidobacteria.

The compositional changes of bifidobacterial populations associated with different stages of life are reviewed. Variations in the composition of the human gut microbiota and bifidobacterial communities due to subsistence strategy, i.e., from hunter-gatherer to urban industrial Western lifestyle, has been studied. Also, the canine gut microbiota and the contribution of bifidobacterial taxa in this ecosystem have been explored.

Benefits of Microbes for Mice

Beneficial bacteria on the skin of lab mice work with the animals’ immune systems to defend against disease-causing microbes and accelerate wound healing, according to new research from scientists at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, part of the National Institutes of Health. Researchers say untangling similar mechanisms in humans may improve approaches to managing skin wounds and treating other damaged tissues.

Like humans and other mammals, mice are inhabited by large, diverse microbial populations collectively called the microbiome. While the microbiome is believed to have many beneficial functions across several organ systems, little is known about how the immune system responds to these harmless bacteria.

Join us for the upcoming Microbial Biotechnology 2018 Congress scheduled during September 17-18, 2018 at Lisbon, Portugal.

Facts on Food Safety

Some facts about Food Safety:- 
  • More than 200 diseases are spreading through food
  • Contaminated food can cause long-term health problems
  • Foodborne diseases affect vulnerable people harder than other group
  • There are many opportunities for food contamination to take place
  • Globalization makes food safety more complex and essential
  • Food safety is multisectoral and  multidisciplinary
  • Food contamination also affects the economy and society as a whole
  • Some harmful bacteria are becoming resistant to drug treatments
  • Everybody has a role to play in keeping food safe
  • Consumers must be well informed on food safety practices

Microbial Insecticides

Microbial Insecticides are single celled organisms such as bacteria, fungus, viruses that are mass produced and formulated to use in an analogous manner as that of an insecticide. Microbial insecticides are produced using genetic engineering. The available microbial insecticides are prepared from Bacillus thuringiensis, Baculoviral etc. This is very cost effective, eco-friendly. It is an alternative method for insect management   for pest management and pest control.

  • Mode of Action and Mechanism
  • Advantages and Dis advantages
  • Target Insects
  • Marketing
  • Insecticidal Toxins
  • Isolation and Genetic Engineering of Genes

Scientific Session - Microbial Genetics

Microbial Genetics can be defined as a subject which involves both microbiology and genetic engineering. It deals with the study of the mechanism of heritable information in bacteria their chromosomes, phages, plasmids etc. The techniques generally involved in microbial genetics are replica plating, conjugation, transformation, transduction, mutagenesis etc. Microbes are suited for studying genetics and made a huge contribution in the field of genetic engineering. Microbial genetics have various applications in the field of pharmaceutical, medical, food and agricultural industries.
