Modepalli. V and Kumar. A were funded by the Deakin University PhD program. Animals were maintained at The University of Melbourne facility. The work was also partially supported by a Grand Challenges Explorations grant from Bill & Melinda Gate Foundation "A new approach to identify proteins that improve gut development and function in premature and low birth weight babies (ID#OPP1045915)" to cover sequencing costs.
