Taking a Closer Look at Microbial Friends and Foes With Intestine-on-a-Chip

This cross section of a mouse Colon Chip shows the actin cytoskeleton of epithelial cells in magenta, the overlying mucus in yellow, and the cells' nuclei in blue. The team used this chip in a comparative analysis of mouse and human microbiomes to test their different abilities to induce tolerance to the pathogen Salmonella typhimurium.
