The microbiome: What’s happening in our bodies?

The study’s authors hope their research will help guide the development of better diagnostic tools and treatments for the microbiome.

“In our experience, there’s a lack of diagnostic tools for the microbiota,” Dr Bhattacharya said.

“We want to develop an approach that allows you to identify the different types of microbes, which are more useful than a single species or one species of bacteria.”

Dr Bhattamparath said the researchers were interested in the relationship between microbes and the immune system because some of the microbiome’s genes were found to play a role in the development and maintenance of the immune responses in the body.

“The idea is to develop tools to diagnose these microbes, or if we don’t find one, to try to get them into the system,” Dr Jain said.
