The gut microbiome impacts human health through the production of metabolites by bacterial cross-feeders, which rely on primary degraders for simple sugars. Our project focused on identifying cross-feeding interactions from noisy in vivo measurements using sparse graphical models. We have recovered a known interaction between Ruminococcus bromii and Eubacterium rectale and discovered a new one. In this meeting, we hope to discuss next steps, suggestions/advice from the community, and/or funding for additional research.

Zoom information will be sent to e-HAIL members.
