We celebrated World Microbiome Day 2020 over the weekend by hosting a webinar "Gut feeling is real science: Know your gut microbiome!" with our expert speakers from Malaysia and Singapore who provided insights on the connection of gut microbiome to our health and mental state. During the live session, we received many questions from viewers but did not have time to get to everyone. So as promised, here are answers to some of the questions we did not get a chance to answer.
Research Insider this week gets up close with Low Wen Wen, a microbiologist-in-training who is pursuing her PhD at Imperial College London. She is investigating how antibiotic resistance genes are transmitted in a bacteria called Klebsiella pneumoniae. It is a major cause of hospital-acquired infections. Research Insider also identifies the areas of United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) which the research covers and its impact.
