Our perception of microbial communities inhabiting the human body, previously referred to as “flora”, was limited due to the constraints of culture-dependent methods [1]. Recent advances in technology, particularly sequencing methods and bioinformatics tools, have promoted significant expansion of our understanding of the human-associated microorganisms, currently referred to as human “microbiome” or “microbiota” [2]. They outnumber human cells tenfold, and impact multiple aspects of [...]
