Conference and workshop about microbiota: bacterial organisms that are mainly concentrated in the gastrointestinal tract and that help us to digest food and contribute to our defensive system. Dr. César Nombela, full Professor of Microbiology at the University Complutense of Madrid and Rector of the University Menéndez Pelayo , will talk about these issues in a conference. After the talk, there will take place a workshop (like a laboratory practice) in which participants will be able to perform simple experiments with bacteria samples, prebiotic foods, milk lactose and bread dough.
