World Microbiome Day 2022 – 27th June 2022
Joint Celebration by ABLE & BioTecNika
Webinar Agenda – Understanding Microbiome, Our Mystery Organ
World Microbiome Day honors all things microbial and emphasizes how microbiomes, through coexisting with humans, animals, and plants, have a huge impact on the health and balance of the habitats we live in. World Microbiome Day 2022 is being observed this year on June 27th by international researchers with the goal of raising awareness and sharing their passion and expertise about the vast world of microorganisms. Dietary interventions, prebiotic and probiotic supplementation, human donor-derived fecal microbiota transplants, chosen combinations of bacterial strains used as live biotherapeutics, and beneficial goods or microorganisms have all been developed because of microbiome research.
On World Microbiome Day 2022, BioTecNika, under the auspices of the Association for Biotechnology Led Enterprises (ABLE), brings together academic and industrial professionals to discuss how the human microbiome, which is sometimes referred to as a “mystery organ,” might be better understood. Also discussed will be the current technological advancements that allow for the development of a new generation of biotherapeutics.
