Advances in sequencing technology and the development of metagenomic and bioinformatics methods have opened up new ways to investigate the 10(14) microorganisms inhabiting the human gut. The gene composition of human gut microbiome in a large and deeply sequenced cohort highlighted an overall non-redundant genome size 150 times larger than the human genome. The in silico predictions based on metagenomic sequencing are now actively followed, compared and challenged using additional 'omics… CONTINUE READING
