Gut microbiome implicated in anorexia

A recent review, published in Frontiers in Psychiatry, has examined the evidence that the gut microbiome may play a significant […]

Lung microbiome implicated in lung cancer pathogenesis and prognosis

A recent paper, published in Cancer Discovery, has found that enrichment of the lungs with oral commensal microbes was associated […]

Human microbiome predicts age

Researchers have evaluated the ability of the oral, gut and skin (palm and forehead) microbiomes in predicting age in adults. […]

Metatranscriptomic analysis of COVID-19 patients show disrupted airway microbiome

A team of researchers have conducted a metatranscriptomic characterisation study of patients with COVID-19 and found specific immune-associated host transcriptional […]

A molecular connection between the gut microbiome, genetics and memory has been established

The role the microbiome plays in human health has long been studied, but recent studies have been elucidating that it […]

First gene catalogue of human vaginal microbiome created

The catalogue, Human Vaginal Non-Redundant gene catalogue (VIRGO), has been released publicly and can be used to facilitate an in-depth understanding of how the vaginal micro-organisms affect women’s health

Does your microbiome give away your age?

A collaborative US and Chinese study has found that the microbial communities present on our skin and in our mouths can predict your age, within a margin of several years. Additionally, they found a loss of key bacterial species in older participants, suggesting a potential anti-aging target.
