Dynamic metabolic interactions and trophic roles of human gut microbes identified using a minimal microbiome exhibiting ecological properties – Sudarshan A Shetty – The ISME Journal → This study shows the experimental setting of a minimal microbiome composed of 16 bacterial species, characterizing their metabolic relationships, dynamics, and stability.
Integrated Microbiome and Host Transcriptome Profiles Link Parkinson’s Disease to Blautia Genus: Evidence From Feces, Blood, and Brain – Xingzhi Guo – Frontiers in Microbiology → Members of Blautia, a relatively common genus in the human gut, was “consistently depleted across feces, blood, and brain samples of PD patients”. This study suggests a link between Blautia and PD.
