  • Discoveries of new biomarkers for frequently occurring diseases are of special importance in today's medicine. While fully developed type II diabetes (T2D) can be detected easily, the early identification of high risk individuals is an area of interest in T2D, too. Metagenomic analysis of the human bacterial flora has shown subtle changes in diabetic patients, but no specific microbes are known to cause or promote the disease. Moderate changes were also detected in the microbial gene… CONTINUE READING
