Our microbiota experts are ready to help you

What is your hypothesis, and how can you best set up your study in order to generate a set of microbiota analysis results, and what exactly should be analysed? Should you perhaps include fungi in your study, as well as bacteria? What does the resulting data tell us? These questions and more are answered by MiCA’s team of experts: all dedicated scientists at the forefront of microbiota research.
