A Guido Bernardini Foundation course.

The collective term of the microorganisms that typically inhabit a bodily organ or part is microbiota. It is involved in numerous aspects of normal animal physiology and has profound effects on laboratory animal health, also contributing to the development of many diseases. The lectures of the renowned speakers of this course will cover the most recent information on the microbiota of laboratory rodents and on the use of gnotobiotic animals as experimental models.

In addition, topics related to the organization and management of facilities that breed and use such animals for research are included. Cutting-edge information on breeding, maintenance and care of gnotobiotic rodent strains will be provided, including strategies to maintain and monitor the defined microbiota. The technological solutions available and “the state of the art” and prospective applications of gnotobiotic animals in research will be illustrated.
