The Impact of Delivery Mode and Feeding Method on Infant Gut Microbiome Establishment

Special thanks to Eray Şahin for the bioinformatics analysis of data. This guide will discuss the impact of delivery mode and feeding method on infant gut microbiome establishment, a study conducted by researchers from the University of California Davis.   The research team used The CosmosID Metagenomics App to analyze microbial samples collected from infants...

Background Chronic kidney disease is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality around the globe. The disease often leads to kidney failure whe it progresses to end-stage renal disease (ESRD). ESRD produces $34 billion of costs annually to the US economy.  ESRD etiology is often driven by the accumulation of toxic metabolites in body compartments....

Background Metagenomics studies using shotgun sequencing have been an important tool for investigating the gut microbiome of pets, including dogs, in recent years.   These studies involve sequencing all DNA fragments present in a sample, allowing for the identification and characterization of the diverse range of microorganisms present in the gut microbiome. Such studies have...

Approximately 85%–90% of individuals develop acne during adolescence, a time period that coincides with the onset and transition through puberty.  It is well established that the physical and biochemical properties of the skin are influenced by puberty and skin colonization by microbes. Functional genes encoded in the microbes may alter skin ecology as well. In...

Thank you for your interest in our series of vaginal microbiome comparisons. Based on the results of this month’s survey, today we follow up on the functional metagenomic diversity of the non-pregnant community state type (CST) I female vaginal microbiome. As a quick refresher, a healthy vaginal microbiome harbors low microbial diversity, as opposed to...

The oral microbiome is second to the gut microbiome in human microbiome complexity partly due to its constant exposure to inhaled and ingested microbes. There are estimated to be more than 700 microbial species in the oral cavity and 54% of these microbes are uncultivable. As such, elucidating the metabolic functions of the uncultivable oral...
