Joseph Nathaniel Paulson (@dorageh) and Paul Igor Costea (@CosteaPaul) are both mathematical and computer scientists. Their studies focus on processing large metagenomic data, specifically with gut microbiota and health in mind. They have corresponded recently through articles about normalization methods to get signal from complex omics data in Nature Methods. They were happy to give us their points of view…

Elena Buelow published under Willem van Schaik's supervision her work about the monitoring of patients in intensive care units to assess the selective digestive decontamination using a metagenomics approach. She accepted to give us highlights of her study which give new insight about the gut resistome. 1) What is your background? I have obtained my Master’s degree in Medical Biology…

In this study, Aviles-Jimenez and co-workers aimed to characterize microbiota of the gastric mucosa as its progress to intestinal type of cancer. To do that, they analysed gastric tissue in patients with non-atrophic gastritis (NAG), intestinal metaplasia (IM) and intestinal-type gastric cancer (GC). After performing genetic analyses on the samples, the researchers quantified a low bacterial diversity in all samples,…

It is known that disruption of gut microbiota by use of antibiotics makes individuals more vulnerable to Clostridium difficile infection (CDI). Also, antibiotic treatment for CDI can eliminate potentially protective commensal bacteria, which could, in turn, facilitate Clostridium difficile reinfection. Thus, recurrence of those infections remains a clinical challenge.   In this “Between Bedside to Bench” article in the Nature…
