Characterization of saliva microbiota’s functional feature based on metagenomic sequencing

Abstract

OBJECTIVE Saliva, a mixture of exocrinally secretive fluids, amounts to ~1.5 L daily and harbors numerous microbial inhabitants. However, except the organismal structure of saliva microbiota, the functional profile of saliva microbiota remain elusive. METHODS Here we used metagenomic sequencing to experimentally reconstruct the global genomic profile of… (More)
