“Modeling Sugar-Microbiome Interactions in the Gastrointestinal Tract”

The microbiome plays important roles in shaping our overall health, but there is a limited understanding of how to alter and regulate it. The goal of Davey’s research is to investigate the roles that host sugars play in shaping the microbiome in the gastrointestinal tract. Using published human data linking host and microbial changes, this research will focus on the computational modeling of sugar-microbiome interactions.
