Study Detail

TitleGenetic determinants of the gut microbiome in the TwinsUK cohort
Study TypeWhole Genome Sequencing
Abstract Recent genetic studies in mice and humans have revealed intriguing genetic associations with the gut microbiome. Here we report a 16S rRNA-based analysis of the gut microbiome in 1,126 twin pairs, a subset of which we previously analyzed. Tripling the sample reduced the confidence intervals around h .. [more]
