Pre-treatment with antibiotics and Escherichia coli to equalize the gut microbiota in conventional mice


The composition of the gut microbiota can vary widely between individual mice of the same batch and thereby affect the resulting outcome in experimental studies. Therefore, an efficient method is needed to equalize the gut microbiota prior to the start of critical experiments. In order to minimize variations in gut microbiota between animals and provide the… (More)
