The human interface with the microbial world has so far largely been considered through the somewhat restrictive angle of host–pathogen interactions resulting in disease. It has consequently largely ignored the daily symbiosis with the microbiota, an ensemble of symbiotic microorganisms engaged in a commensal, and for some of them mutualistic, interaction. This microbiota heavily populates essential surfaces such as the oral and intestinal cavity, the upper respiratory tract, the vagina, and… Expand
