microbiome Global Subway Metagenomics Study Reveals Cities' Microbial Fingerprints The study found more than 10,000 viruses and hundreds of bacteria not present in any reference database, along with other novel genomic features. Illumina, Microba Life Sciences Partner on Human Gut Microbiome Research The partners will combine Illumina's next-generation sequencing technology with Australia-based Microba Life Science's microbiome analysis platform. Researchers Reconstruct Ancient Human Gut Microbiomes From Paleofeces The analysis found the ancient gut microbiomes to be similar to those of modern-day individuals from non-industrialized populations. Ancient Oral Microbiomes Reveal Similarities Between Neanderthals, Modern Humans The researchers found a Homo-specific acquisition of starch digestion capability in oral streptococci, suggesting microbes co-adapted with the host's diet. 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.
