Bacterial Community Variation in Human Body Habitats Across Space and Time
Growing on You The human gut and skin harbor diverse microbial communities that are known to vary strikingly among individuals. Here, Costello et al. (p. 1694, published online 5 November) analyzedExpand

Delivery mode shapes the acquisition and structure of the initial microbiota across multiple body habitats in newborns
Upon delivery, the neonate is exposed for the first time to a wide array of microbes from a variety of sources, including maternal bacteria. Although prior studies have suggested that delivery modeExpand

The Application of Ecological Theory Toward an Understanding of the Human Microbiome
The human-microbial ecosystem plays a variety of important roles in human health and disease. Each person can be viewed as an island-like “patch” of habitat occupied by microbial assemblages formedExpand

Temporal and spatial variation of the human microbiota during pregnancy
Significance The human indigenous microbial communities (microbiota) play critical roles in health and may be especially important for mother and fetus during pregnancy. Using a case-control cohortExpand

Biogeochemical consequences of rapid microbial turnover and seasonal succession in soil.
Soil microbial communities have the metabolic and genetic capability to adapt to changing environmental conditions on very short time scales. In this paper we combine biogeochemical and molecularExpand

Supervised classification of human microbiota.
Recent advances in DNA sequencing technology have allowed the collection of high-dimensional data from human-associated microbial communities on an unprecedented scale. A major goal of these studiesExpand

Cohabiting family members share microbiota with one another and with their dogs
Human-associated microbial communities vary across individuals: possible contributing factors include (genetic) relatedness, diet, and age. However, our surroundings, including individuals with whomExpand

Postprandial remodeling of the gut microbiota in Burmese pythons
The vertebrate gut microbiota evolved in an environment typified by periodic fluctuations in nutrient availability, yet little is known about its responses to host feeding and fasting. As many modelExpand
