The more than 100 trillion microbes we host - the human microbiota - can identify us as individuals much like a fingerprint, a new study by Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health reveals. It seems that these personal microorganisms have distinguishing features that can potentially be used to identify us over time. Published in the journal PNAS, this research is…

“Our mission is to make tremendous improvements to human health through microbiome science”, states the front page of the new American Microbiome Institute’s website.  Established in 2013, it is a non-profit organization aimed at advancing science and education related to microbiomes. Although they have ‘American’ in their name, they pursue establishing cooperation ties with researchers in Europe. Companies, academic institutions,…

No one questions today the importance of the bacterial communities living in our digestive tract, our gut flora or gut microbiota, for our overall health and wellbeing. However, there is still a lack of more in-depth knowledge that could lead to the development of dietary or lifestyle interventions that could help prevent, for example, diet-related or behavioral disorders. A new…

As we explained in one of the first posts on this blog, the American  National Institutesof Health (NIH) launched a five-year initiative in 2008 aimed at studying the ins and outs of the human microbiome to “characterize microbial communities found at multiple human body sites and look for correlations between changes in the microbiome and human health”. Today, we’d like…

Great projects such as Human Microbiome Project and MetaHIT have arrived to the end in the last two years, but it doesn’t mean research on gut microbiota stops. A second generation of studies has started, evidencing the relevance of this topic. Scientist are focusing on gut microbiota, increasing the current knowledge about its importance and relation with our health and…

Did you know that we can find more than 100 trillion of good bacteria in our body? According to a study carried out by more than 80 universities and 200 researchers, humans are made up of more microbes than human cells. Although these figures show us the importance of microbes in our health, the knowledge in that field remained largely…
