National Institutes of Health establishes Microbiome and Metagenomics Center at UC San Diego, part of new effort to predict individual responses to food and inform personalized nutrition recommendations
The Sum Exceeds Its Parts – Overall Dietary Patterns Have a Greater Influence on Microbiome Composition than Individual Foods
The foods we eat have a wide range of effects on our bodies. They provide energy and nutrients, affect our health, and even bring us pleasure. In addition, our diet influences the composition of our gut microbiome, which has a wide range of implications for our health. While the fact that our dietary choices impact…

Blending experts from molecular genetics, chemistry and health sciences, researchers at the University of California San Diego have created a rapid diagnostic technology that detects SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus that causes COVID-19.
When early evidence emerged that people with COVID-19—whether or not they have symptoms—shed the virus in their stool, “the sewer seemed like the ‘happening’ place to look for it,” said Smruthi Karthikeyan, an environmental engineer and postdoctoral researcher who works in the lab of Rob Knight at UC San Diego School of Medicine.
Researchers identify a bacteria on healthy cats that produces antibiotics against severe skin infections; the findings may lead to new bacteriotherapies for humans and their pets
The Meaningful Marriage of Metabolism and Microbiome: How Metabolites and Bile Acids Might Influence the Detection and Treatment of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is the leading cause of female infertility, affecting approximately 10% of reproductive-aged women. Moreover, women with the disorder often suffer from metabolic issues that can lead to type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. Unfortunately, since PCOS is a complex genetic trait disorder, the cause is unknown, and…
