Obtaining a close characterization of human microbial diversity and abundance remains a challenge for the researchers of today. In the past, microbial composition was studied using culture-based methods that underestimated diversity, as only between 20% and 50% members are culturable. Over the past decade, our understanding of the composition and diversity of the gut microbiota has advanced through culture-independent methods…

There is emerging interest concerning the influence of human adaptation to varying environments on the gut microbiome. A recent study, published by the microbial ecologist Dr. Andres Gomez, a staff scientist at the J. Craig Venter Institute, studied diet and environmental factors in traditional populations and how they were associated with gut microbiome composition.   Gomez and his team analysed…
