It's quite interesting how the recent recognition of the role the gut and it's contents play is changing perception about potential causes of diseases and poor productivity in poultry and other species. Unfortunately, scientists in less developed countries can not share in this development due to lack of science infrastructure despite being the hub of animal disease challenges. May I request through this medium for collaboration with those of us who are encumbered so that our people can benefit from the knowledge. Most of our challenges are in the area of determining the gut microbial types and their populations. I hope someone is ready to assist those of us interested in Nsukka, Nigeria.

The hypothesis regarding the impact of microbiota and it's interaction with host's epithelial cells theoretically could be due to dysbiosis especially in the face of challenge by stressors. This could be the mechanism at when common microflora suddenly become virulent as happens with Escherichia coli or even salmonellosis in different species.The challenge is identifying those responsible stressors and avoiding the consequent dysbiosis and a solution will be worked out.
