Host effects on microbiota community assembly.


To what extent host-associated microbiota assembly is driven by host selection or simply by happenstance remains an open question in microbiome research. Here, we take a first step towards elucidating the relative importance of host selection on the establishing gut microbial community in an ecologically relevant organism. We presented germ-free bumblebee… (More)
