Ecological robustness of the gut microbiota in response to ingestion of transient food-borne microbes

Abstract

Resident gut microbes co-exist with transient bacteria to form the gut microbiota. Despite increasing evidence suggesting a role for transient microbes on gut microbiota function, the interplay between resident and transient members of this microbial community is poorly defined. We aimed to determine the extent to which a host’s autochthonous gut microbiota… (More)
