摘要:
We coexist with a vast number of microbes—our microbiota—that live in and on 
our bodies,and play an important role in human physiology and diseases. Propelled 
by metagenomics and next-generation DNA sequencing technologies, many scientific 
advances have been made through the work of large-scale, consortium-driven metag
-enomic projects. Despite these advances, there are still many fundamental questions 
regarding the dynamics and control of microbiota to be addressed. Indeed, it is well 
established that human-associated microbes form a very complex and dynamic ecosy
-stem, which can be altered by drastic diet change, medical interventions, and many 
other factors. The alterability of our microbiome offers opportunities for practical 
microbiome-based therapies, e.g., fecal microbiota transplantation and probiotic 
administration, to restore or maintain our healthy microbiota. Yet, the complex structure
and dynamics of the underlying ecosystem render the quantitative study of microbiome
-based therapies extremely difficult. In this talk, I will discuss our recent theoretical 
progress on controlling human microbiota.
