The focus of this talk is on the microbiome and its interactions within bacterial communities and with the host. Jonas Schlüter’s lab investigates large clinical data sets based on machine learning and AI, and develops mathematical models based on Game Theory. Also, he uses microbiome engineering to find therapeutic targets and several clinical trials have been initiated.
