Bioreactors and in-vitro culturing techniques are fundamental for the study of the compositional dynamics of natural microbial consortia and its metabolic responses to environmental controlled perturbations. The presentation will show how single-step packed- bed bioreactors seeded with identical infant pre-assembled complex inoculum can be methodically operated to reproducibly control the dynamic assembly of cohesive consortium when continuously fed with dietary carbohydrate structures of increasing complexity.
