PhD candidate at Wageningen UR, studying the human gut microbiome for understanding its role and function in human health.

The human gut microbiome consists of Bacteria, Archaea, viruses (mainly bacteriophages) and micro-eukaryotes (Human Microbiome Project Consortium). A wealth of data is available on bacterial communities and the focus is only occasionally directed towards the micro-eukaryotic members. Most of the studies have investigated bacterial community composition and structure independent of bacteriophages and micro-eukaryotes. This results in incomplete insight into the…

The latest revelation in human gut microbiome research is the gut bacterial profiles of fifteen tribal populations representing four geographic regions (Assam, Telangana, Manipur and Sikkim) from India. The study by Dehingia, et al. (2015), Gut bacterial diversity of the tribes of India and comparison with the worldwide data (see References), is a good addition to the knowledge base of gut microbiome…

While a lot of research in gut microbiota is focused on the bacterial community, little research data is available on the microeukaryotic community. Knowledge about the role of the microeukaryotic community in the gut and its interaction with the bacterial community and its host is insufficient (Anderson et al., 2013). One of the commonly observed microeukaryotes is Blastocystis. There is ongoing…
