The human gastrointestinal tract harbors an extremely diverse and complex microbial ecosystem. Most of the existent data about the enteric microflora have been generated using stool samples, but the collection and storage of fecal samples are often problematic. The influence of the storage of stool samples on the bacterial diversity and the degradation of bacterial DNA was analysed in this study. Stool samples from 5 healthy volunteers were exposed to different storage temperatures and… CONTINUE READING
