NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Bio-Rad Laboratories will collaborate with Genetic Analysis and Bioaster, a French microbiology research institute, to study gut microbiome alterations in metabolic disorders, Bioaster announced today.

The project will look for microbiota signatures of dysbiosis in metabolic disorders like diabetes and obesity in order to pursue diagnostics development. It will use Bioaster's deep and 16S-targeted sequencing technologies and advanced pipelines of data analysis for highlighting new gut microbiome biomarkers, according to a statement.
