The role of the microbial environment in Drosophila post-embryonic development.

  title={The role of the microbial environment in Drosophila post-embryonic development.},
  author={Maura Strigini and François Leulier},
  journal={Developmental and comparative immunology},
Development, growth and maturation of animals are under genetic and environmental control. Multicellular organisms interact throughout their lives with a variety of environment- and body-associated microorganisms. It has now been appreciated that the very conspicuous and varied microbial population associated with the food and the gastro-intestinal tract is a critical factor that can influence growth. Beyond the phenomenology, the mechanisms underlying the beneficial effects of microbes on… CONTINUE READING
