Session 8: Environmental exposure and the microbiome
Monday, July 25, 2016: 1:00 PM-4:30 PM
Bayside A, 4th Fl (Sheraton New Orleans)
Aaron T. Wright - Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and Julia Yue Cui - University of Washington
The broad diversity of microbes residing within mammals greatly extends the synthetic and metabolic capacity of the host organisms.  This session will focus on the impact that chemical exposures have on host microbiomes, and how perturbed microbiomes influence host susceptibility to xenobiotics such as drugs and environmental chemicals.  Important biological studies and pertinent technological developments will be discussed.
