A human gut microbial gene catalogue established by metagenomic sequencing
To understand the impact of gut microbes on human health and well-being it is crucial to assess their genetic potential. Here we describe the Illumina-based metagenomic sequencing, assembly andExpand

Dynamics and Stabilization of the Human Gut Microbiome during the First Year of Life.
The gut microbiota is central to human health, but its establishment in early life has not been quantitatively and functionally examined. Applying metagenomic analysis on fecal samples from a largeExpand
