Detecting and understanding microbiome and metabolome interactions via networks
Microbiomes are communities of bacteria. These communities exist in a variety of places ranging from soil and the ocean to various locations on the human body. Next generation sequencing technologies have made it possible to catalog the bacteria that live in these communities as well as the metabolic functions which they are capable of. Now that the studies of what microbes are present or what functions are present has become routine, questions of why these communities exist in certain compositions as well as why they shift with disease are being explored. One way to understand the functional ...
