■Special issue information
The human gut microbiome is a diverse and complicated ecosystem. It contains approximately 40 trillion microorganisms and most of them are bacteria. Recent studies have shown that gut microbiota plays a critical role in gut epithelial health and the immune system and that the imbalance of gut microbiota is one of the leading causes of metabolic diseases.
It has also been revealed that probiotics (the beneficial microorganisms), prebiotics (food for beneficial gut inhabitants), synbiotics (combination of probiotic strains and prebiotic foods), and postbiotics (metabolites produced from the interaction of probiotics and prebiotics) have a significant influence on the gut microbiota composition and their metabolic activities for the prevention and treatment of metabolic diseases, such as obesity and type 2 diabetes mellitus, inflammatory bowel disease, allergic disorders, and so on. Therefore, it has been proposed to manipulate the gut microbiome using pro-, pre-, syn-, and postbiotics, thereby improving individual health.
This special issue will contain articles describing pro-, pre-, syn- and postbiotics, which can modulate the gut microbiota composition and their implication on gut epithelial health, immunologic activity, and human health.
The subjects covered by this special issue are;
- comprehensive review on the role of the gut microbiome in human health
- all issues related to the role of the gut microbiome in health and disease
- the role of the gut microbiome in domestic animal health
- animal models for microbiome research
- cross-scale analysis of animal and human gut microbiome
- influence of diet on the gut microbiome and implications for human health
- analysis of food microbiome for safety and process management
- development and application of probiotics, prebiotics, synbiotics, postbiotics
- the role of pro-, pre-, syn-, and postbiotics on the gut microbiome
- health benefits of probiotics, prebiotics, synbiotics, and postbiotics
- next-generation probiotics and prebiotics
- Safety issue on the probiotics, prebiotics, synbiotics, and postbiotics
