Succession of microbial consortia in the developing infant gut microbiome
The colonization process of the infant gut microbiome has been called chaotic, but this view could reflect insufficient documentation of the factors affecting the microbiome. We performed a 2.5-yExpand

Host Remodeling of the Gut Microbiome and Metabolic Changes during Pregnancy
Many of the immune and metabolic changes occurring during normal pregnancy also describe metabolic syndrome. Gut microbiota can cause symptoms of metabolic syndrome in nonpregnant hosts. Here, toExpand

Impact of training sets on classification of high-throughput bacterial 16s rRNA gene surveys
Taxonomic classification of the thousands–millions of 16S rRNA gene sequences generated in microbiome studies is often achieved using a naïve Bayesian classifier (for example, the Ribosomal DatabaseExpand
