Access from EThOS:
From birth onwards, infants are challenged by a vast quantity and variety of microorganisms. The impact of diet on the gut microbiota is of particular interest, especially in relation to the health of the infant. The objective of this work was to monitor the bacterial succession of the infant GI tract during the developmental stages of gut physiology and microbiology. The diversity and dynamics of the infant gut microbiota were analysed, both at the community level and with regard to specific populations of interest.
