Track 9: Gut microbiome

    Bacteria, viruses, fungi and other microscopic living things are referred to as microorganisms, or microbes. Trillions of these microbes exist mainly inside the intestines and on the skin. Most of the microbes in the intestines are found in a pocket of large intestine called the #cecum, and they are referred to as the #Gut microbiome. The Gut microbiome refers to all of the microbes in the intestines, which act as another organ that's crucial for the health. Gut microbiota or gastrointestinal #microbiota is the complex community of microorganisms that live in the digestive tracts of humans and other animals, including insects. The Gut metagenome is the aggregate of all the genomes of gut microbiota. The gut microbiome begins to affect the body the moment after the birth. In humans, the gut microbiota has the largest numbers of bacteria and the greatest number of species compared to other areas of the body.
