TitleAdding a new perspective to microbiome profiling: Assessing absolute microbial abundancies by spike-in based calibration
Study TypeOther
Abstract Current gut microbiome studies usually compare the relative abundance of organisms in different specimens. Although this accurately reflects any changes in the microbiome composition, it does not reveal alterations in absolute numbers of specific taxa. Here we suggest to spike exogenous bacteria int ..
