  • Almost half the cells and 1% of the unique genes found in our bodies are human, the rest are from microbes, predominantly bacteria, archaea, fungi, and viruses. These microorganisms collectively form the human microbiota, with most colonizing the gut. Recent technological advances, open access data libraries, and application of high‐throughput sequencing have allowed these microbes to be identified and their contribution to neurological health to be examined. Emerging evidence links… CONTINUE READING
