The gut is home of trillions of mostly beneficial bacteria that help in digestion of food, generate vitamins and other beneficial bioactive metabolites and train the immune system.

However, host-microbe interactions can turn sour, giving rise to various diseases such as inflammatory bowel diseases. Host-microbe interactions have co-evolved, so it is not surprising that the epigenetic and genome regulatory machinery is part of this crosstalk.

In this talk  Dr Patrick Varga-Weisz will present recent unpublished work concerning chromatin dynamics in host-microbe interactions in the gut.


Dr Patrick Varga-Weisz is a Lecturer in the School of Life Sciences at the University of Essex.
