The Barile Lab was recently featured in the documentary Petrolio: DNA Revolution. The primary focus of the film is the discussion of the applications and controversies of CRISPR (Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats, an emerging technology used to edit genes), but also discusses the importance of gut microbiota for health. The Barile lab’s appearance begins at the 2 and a half hour mark of the documentary, and includes excerpts from an interview with Professor Daniela Barile about the role of milk oligosaccharides in the development of a healthy infant gut microbiota, as well of shots of lab members Yu-Ping Huang and Dr. Gulustan Ozturk working in the Barile Lab and UC Davis Milk Processing Lab, respectively.
