The microbial mass present in the human species is ten times greater than that of human cells. We know now that this metagenome influences us greatly, playing a role in our metabolism, tissue development, inflammation and immunity. Certain body habitats suffer greater exposure to the outside world than others, increasing the importance of the human microbiome on such body sites. Studyin...
Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the third most common cancer in the world, affecting more than 1.3 million people every year. CRCs can be divided into sporadic, inflammatory and hereditary forms. Genetics can, however, explain only a small proportion of disease variance. Using 16S rRNA amplicon sequencing, several bacterial species have been implicated in the development of CRC, but high-res...
