Second-generation sequencing technologies have granted us greater access to the diversity and genetics of microbial communities that naturally reside endoand ecto-symbiotically with animal hosts. Substantial research has emerged describing the diversity and broader trends that exist within and between host species and their associated microbial ecosystems, yet the application of these data to our evolutionary understanding of microbiomes appears fragmented. For the most part biological… CONTINUE READING
