What effect does probiotic consumption have on blood pressure?   This was the question that a systematic review in Hypertension set out to answer. Several databases were analysed, and publications were included if they met established criteria previously determined by the reviewers, such as (1) human randomized, control trials; (2) adults ≥ 18 year-old with or without hypertension, (3) use…

Two papers were recently published in Nature Biotechnology, both on the topic of finding out the content of gut microbiota samples. The Gut Microbiota for Health website previously covered both selections: The paper authored by Li et al. presented an updated collection of reference sequences for new human gut metagenomics studies, with about ten million genes. The work of Nielsen, et al. introduced…

This article is a collaboration of representatives from academia, medicine, and industry who came together at a workshop during the International Scientific Association for Probiotics and Prebiotics (ISAPP) held in Cork, Ireland in October, 2012. The goal of the workshop was to assess evidence on the link between the microbiome and under-nutrition, focusing specifically on probiotic and prebiotic treatments. Participants hoped…

This research article published in Nature Biotechnology introduced a new method of segregating human gut metagenomics data into specific biological entities (e.g. microbial species or viruses) without the need for reference sequences.   Nielsen and collaborators developed a method based on binning co-abundant genes across a series of metagenomic samples. The method was tested on human gut microbiome samples from 396…

This article in Nature Communications addressed the much-debated issue of microbiota stability over time. The idea of a "tipping element" is a hat tip to the field of climate change research, where it means a threshold at which a small perturbation in one element can qualitatively change a system.   Here, Lahti and collaborators described a deep phylogenetic analysis of the…
