TOKYO-Lundi 6 Mars 2017 [ ME NewsWire ] (BUSINESS WIRE)--Morinaga Milk Industry Co., Ltd. (TOKYO : 2264), société de produits laitiers de premier plan au Japon, a annoncé aujourd’hui les résultats d’une nouvelle étude qui montrent comment la composition de la flore intestinale chez une population humaine en bonne santé évolue avec l’âge. L’étude, qui a utilisé une nouvelle technologie de séquençage de l’ADN, est unique en raison de sa taille et de la vaste tranche d’âges de ses sujets (nouveau-né à 104 ans). Ces facteurs contribuent à une image nouvelle et exhaustive du modèle typique de l’évolution des bactéries dans l’intestin humain.

TOKYO-Sunday, March 5th 2017 [ ME NewsWire ] (BUSINESS WIRE)-- Morinaga Milk Industry Co., Ltd. (TOKYO:2264), a leading dairy product company in Japan, today announced the results of a new study that show how gut microbiota composition in a healthy human population changes with age. The study, which utilized new technology for sequencing DNA, is unique due to its size and the wide age range of its subjects (newborn to 104 years).
