Monitoring Bacterial Community of Human Gut Microbiota Reveals an Increase in Lactobacillus in Obese Patients and Methanogens in Anorexic Patients
Background Studies of the bacterial communities of the gut microbiota have revealed a shift in the ratio of Firmicutes and Bacteroidetes in obese patients. Determining the variations of microbialExpand

Obesity-associated gut microbiota is enriched in Lactobacillus reuteri and depleted in Bifidobacterium animalis and Methanobrevibacter smithii
Background:Obesity is associated with increased health risk and has been associated with alterations in bacterial gut microbiota, with mainly a reduction in Bacteroidetes, but few data exist at theExpand

The gut microbiota of a patient with resistant tuberculosis is more comprehensively studied by culturomics than by metagenomics
Gut microbiota consists of 1010 bacteria per gram of stool. Many antibiotic regimens induce a reduction in both the diversity and the abundance of the gut flora. We analyzed one stool sampleExpand
