Planet Human Body : The Microbial Populations that Inhabit Us Throughout Life


Planet Human Body : The Microbial Populations that Inhabit Us Throughout Life

Description

This book serves as an introductory guide to the subject because scientists have only recently begun to deal in a scientific way with the complex bacterial populations found in and on humans. It includes chapters on new approaches to characterizing complex microbial populations, the human diseases that might be caused by shifts in the composition of these populations, and the potential for interventions that help restore the microbiota, and the role of horizontal gene transfer in shaping the activities of microbial populations. It examines and explains new research and coordinates it with information from older studies.
