Human Microbiome Project Microbial Fingerprints, Health Insights Gleaned From Individual Gut Microbiome Dynamics With gut microbiome data for individuals sampled four years apart, researchers saw stable and unstable gut microbial species, including those linked to host phenotypes. Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Prediabetes, Preterm Birth Studies Reveal Microbiome-Host Interactions The studies, which used multi-omic approaches, are part of the integrative Human Microbiome Project (iHMP) — the second phase of the Human Microbiome Project. Horizontal Gene Transfer Common Among Human-Associated Bacteria In a study of microbial genome data, researchers noted that many horizontal gene transfer events appeared to occur between different sites within the human body. Gut Microbe Studies Expand Bacterial Culture Collections, Reference Genomes Two research groups have cultured and sequenced microbes in fecal samples from healthy volunteers, producing new reference genomes for hundreds of species. Expanded Human Microbiome Project Examines Dynamics, Functions of Microbial Communities Additional Human Microbiome Project samples have enabled a deeper look into the stability and molecular processes of the microbes that live on and in people.

DNA Biobank Developed for French Kidney Donors, Recipients The KiT-GENIE biobank described in the European Journal of Human Genetics contains DNA samples, genotyping profiles, immune patterns, and clinical features for thousands of kidney donors or transplant recipients in Nantes, France. Cardiometabolic Disease May Have Distinct Associations With Microbial Metabolites in Blood, Gut By analyzing gut microbes in combination with related metabolites in feces and blood, researchers in Nature Communications found distinct cardiometabolic disease relationships at each site. Study Reveals New Details About Genetics of Major Cause of Female Infertility Researchers in Nature Medicine conducted a whole-exome sequencing study of mote than a thousand patients with premature ovarian insufficiency.
