The makeup of our microbiomes-the unique communities of bacteria, viruses and other microbes that live in and on us-have been linked, with varying degrees of evidence, to everything from inflammatory bowel disease to athletic performance.
But exactly how could such tiny organisms have such immense influences on a person?
University of California San Diego researchers have created the first-ever map of all the molecules in every organ of a mouse and the ways in which they are modified by microbes. In one surprising example, they discovered that microbes control the structure of bile acids in both mice and people.
