Bifidobacteria are bacterial gut commensals of mammals, birds and social insects that are perceived to influence the metabolism/physiology of their host. In this context, members of the Bifidobacterium bifidum species are believed to significantly contribute to the overall microbiota of the human gut at infant stage. However, the molecular reasons for their adaptation to this environment are poorly understood. In this study, we analysed the pan-genome of B. bifidum species by decoding genomes… CONTINUE READING
