The human oral microbiome currently comprises 600-700 taxa, but estimates suggest that overall species numbers may turn out to be higher (∼1200). Within the oral cavity, groups of microbial species become arranged into surface-localized communities that vary considerably in composition according to sites of establishment. Factors such as nutrient availability, pH, toxic metabolites, shear forces and host conditions contribute to modelling the structure and activities of these oral microbial… CONTINUE READING
