Despite the importance, the diversity of the human infant gut microbiota still remains poorly characterized at the regional scale. Here, we investigated the faecal microbiota diversity in a large 16S rRNA gene data set from a healthy cohort of 86 mothers and their children from the Trondheim region in Norway. Samples were collected from mothers during early and late pregnancy, as well as from their children at 3 days, 10 days, 4 months, 1 year and 2 years of age. Using a combination of Sanger… CONTINUE READING
