Url: http://www.pnas.org/content/100/18/10452.abstract
Creator: Gordon, Jeffrey
Xu, Jian
Publisher: National Academy of Sciences (U.S.)
Description: This PNAS scholarly article explores the extraordinarily complex and dynamic environmentally transmitted consortia symbiosis of the human intestine. It analyzes the molecular foundations of beneficial symbiotic host-bacterial relationships in the gut and explains how interdisciplinary studies of the effects of the intestinal environment on genome structure and function could provide important new insights about how microbes and humans have coevolved mutually beneficial relationships, as well as introduces new perspectives about the foundations of human health.
