PYC 7595 The Gut Microbiome and Translational Neuroscience Cr. 3

This combined lecture and discussion course will introduce graduate students with interests in translational neurosciences to the emerging field of the gut microbiome. Lectures will cover basics of the gut microbiome to include bacterial taxonomy, samples used to study the gut microbiome, DNA isolation, library construction and quality control and 16S rRNA sequencing on a MiSeq next generation sequencer. Additional lectures will include descriptions of sequence data download and analysis, bioinformatics, multivariate statistics, and graphical display of data. The latest published literature on the gut-brain axis will also be used for purposes of discussion and to give students an appreciation for how the gut microbial community can influence the brain and its function. Particular emphasis will be placed on how a dysbiosis in the gut microbiome can influence psychiatric diseases, substance abuse disorders and other physiological functions attributed entirely to the brain heretofore.
