Happy to share with you our newly accepted paper entitled ” Bact-to-Batch: A Microbiota-Based Tool to Determine Optimal Animal Allocation in Experimental Designs ” in collaboration with the animal platform PLETHA of the Pasteur Institute of Lille, the University of Lille and the Center of Infection and Immunity of Lille (CIIL).

As gut microbiota variability is an important confounding factor in animal experiments, the objective of our study was to develop a new approach based on 16S RNA fingerprints of mice faecal bacterial microbiota in order to correctly assign the animals across batches, limiting artefacts and providing an additional assurance for the reproducibility of animal experiments.
