Learning Objectives:
1. Appreciate the power of simple model systems to mechanistically dissect complex biological processes.
2. Understand the profound impact that our resident microbes (microbiota) and the diet can have on disease treatment outcomes.
3. Recognize that similar treatment outcomes can be driven by completely different molecular pathways and that further mechanistic knowledge is necessary to guide rationally designed treatments.
