Unit 2 Extra Credit – Gut Microbiota Recently scientists have begun to explore microbial ecology of the human gut. Can the types and proportions of microbes you have affect your health? And/or does your health affect the types of microbes in your gut? Here are two peer reviewed journal articles that you can read to get an overview on some of the areas of research. Gut Microbiota and Metabolic Disease: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5227294/ Diet and the Gut Microbiota: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4216184/ For 2pts extra credit, write up a one paragraph summary (at least 5 sentences) of something new that you learned from the articles about the microbial ecology of the human gut.
