The skin serves as the first line of interaction with the external environment and as a defence mechanism against the physical, chemical, or biological stresses and challenges it encounters. The skin microbiota plays a key role in these interactions and defence functions. Formerly known as "skin flora", it colonises every square centimetre of the skin. Its role is fundamental to both skin health and the overall well-being of the body. What are the factors that influence its composition, and what disrupts its...
The cutaneous microbiota has become a subject of interest for the nutri-cosmetics, dermo-cosmetics and beauty industries. New products have been launched that claim to respect the skin's microbiota, as well as skincare products containing a new category of active ingredients - pre-, pro- and post-biotics - designed to protect, rebalance or maintain its equilibrium. These innovations have been made possible by significant scientific and technological advances in the study of microbiota.
Consisting in bacteria, archaea, protists, fungi and/or viruses previously unknown, microbial or microbial communities are now recognized as key actors in the proper functioning of our organism and our environment. Since 2008, GenoScreen has a particular focus on the study of these microbial communities and its R&D team has developed, optimized and standardized various methodologies mandatory for their study (Metabiote®, WHORMSS® etc), starting with the extraction of gDNA adapted to different samples of human/animal microbiotes (faeces, skin samples, oral, sputum, intestinal biopsies etc.) or environmental microbiotes (agricultural/polluted soils, rhizospheres, filtered air etc.) to the final metadata analysis.
