The uncultured candidate bacterial species increase the diversity of human gut bacterial lineages almost threefold and will benefit future research.

Speed Search

Researchers from the University of Oxford have devised an approach to quickly search viral and bacterial genomes, according to the Atlantic.

Two research groups have cultured and sequenced microbes in fecal samples from healthy volunteers, producing new reference genomes for hundreds of species.

Led by researchers at BBMRI-ERIC, the effort intends to clarify how entities should share data, including genomics information, across institutions and countries.
