Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The key role of the human gut microbiome in a range of chronic diseases—including obesity, cardiovascular disease, cancer, inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowel syndrome, allergy, and potentially autoimmune diseases—has become apparent over the last few years since the use of Next Generation Sequencing and bioinformatics has allowed detailed analysis of the genome of the bacteria without the need to grow and isolate species. The addition of transcriptomics and metabolomics allows data to be collected not only on the bacteria present, but also their metabolism and potential bioactive products. However, more traditional targeted bacterial metabolite studies continue to provide important information to help elucidate the mechanisms by which bacteria in the gut can influence human health. This SpecialIssue will cover the colonization of the gut and the factors which influence the microbiome, its metabolic activities, and related biomarkers of health.
