Association Study Based on Metagenomic Sequence Data IDs Gut Microbial Markers for Diabetes | GenomeWeb

Using a newly developed metagenome-wide association study approach, an international team led by investigators at BGI-Shenzhen and the University of Copenhagen has come up with a set of type 2 diabetes-associated microbial gene markers in the human gut that may eventually lead to gut microbe-based methods for diagnosing the disease.

"This is a promising way to diagnose T2D," BGI-Shenzhen researcher Junjie Qin told Clinical Sequencing News in an email message.
