Abstract Recent research suggests that early exposure of piglets to a diverse microbiota can shape the skills of gut-associated lymphoid tissue to respond to exogenous molecules (Lewis et al., 2012). In pig, a short encounter with a complex microbiota in the early life can be sufficient to influence the intestinal microbiota in the following weeks (Jansman et al., 2012). The priming effect of the complexity of the microbiota that enter the digestive tract, is not fully characterized. The gastric barrier of newborn piglets is not fully active and early contact with microbes can affect functional maturation of the stomach. Thus we aimed at evaluating the effect of complexity of starter microbiota on the gastric transcriptome profile of young pigs.
