In this episode we will investigate our #gut#microbial#system about how and why it is effecting they #health system. We are curious to learn what kind of insights will this provide for our understanding of microbial systems? How do these microbial #metabolic pathways in the oxygen free environments work? And what interesting applications can we extract from it.
Special Guest: Koen Venema
Part of the special Microbes Series.
What if we would be able to zoom out? Leaving the microscope and our traditional human perspective on viruses behind for a minute. What would happen if we look at viruses as one of the players in a much broader system? And as such changing our perspective to that of Spaceship Earth and the role of a virus in the web of life? What lessons can we draw from nature’s logic on how Spaceship Earth operates? Together with specialists in the field of virology, microbiology and biochemistry we will take a journey into an unknown world of interesting insights. Combining insights and working towards cross disciplinary solutions and the essential questions we might have been overlooking. And who knows we might discover one or two innovative applications along the way.
