Discussing a computational approach to answering what controls inter-individual variability in the human microbiome. Modulating human microbial communities continues to be an area of intense academic and entrepreneurial interest because of the role of the human microbiome in determining health and … Continue reading
Everyone that reads this blog has some stake in the human microbiome game, so I’m assuming that you would all be interested in exploring your own personal microbiomes! If you haven’t heard of them by now, uBiome is a company started … Continue reading
The development of novel bioinformatics tools has allowed for researchers to glean increasing amounts of information from next generation sequencing of 16S rRNA gene data. Current methods of sequence analysis have been limited to taxonomic identity up to genera or … Continue reading
Last week we drew our attention to the virome as discussed in “Disease-specific alterations in the enteric virome in inflammatory bowel disease” (Norman et. al). Continuing on the thread of ‘other’ components of the microbiome from our discussion last month … Continue reading
Summing up: Bassis et al.’s take on the influence of the URT on other human-associated biogeographies.
Last week, Pat led us in the examination of a new paper from the Huffnagle group at the University of Michigan. This was the first meeting of McMaster’s HMBJC in a few months which meant a very lively discussion since … Continue reading
Scientists recently described a new form of symbiosis at our mucosal sites with an unassuming partner: bacteriophage. In a paper published in PNAS, Jeremy Barr and colleagues noticed that phage are enriched at mucosal surfaces compared to surrounding surfaces and … Continue reading
