Episode 8: The Genomics of Lactic Acid Bacteria: From Fermentation and Probiotics to the Microbiome and CRISPR



For many centuries, fermented foods like cheese, yogurt and kefir have relied on lactic acid bacteria (LAB) for their flavor, nutrition, texture and shelf life. The art of fermentation has now become a science through genomic sequencing of LAB, which has improved the stability of the fermentation process and yielded insights into the probiotic properties of fermented foods and their interaction with the human gut and microbiome.
