Study Detail

TitleAssociation of host genome with intestinal microbial composition in a large healthy cohort
Study TypeOther
Abstract Intestinal microbiota is known to be important in health and disease. Its composition is influenced by both environmental and host factors. However, few large-scale studies have evaluated the association between host genetic variation and the composition of microbiota. We recruited a cohort of 1,561 .. [more]
