Newsletter #145
February 28th, 2019


Dear Friends,

We start this edition of our newsletter with a new study that strengthens the link between gut bacteria and depression, in a first step towards understanding how the gut microbiome and its metabolites might affect mood in humans. You will also find the main findings and achievements of the European Union-funded microbiome project MyNewGut, which has come to an end after five years looking at the gut microbiota’s influence on energy balance, brain development, diet-related diseases and behavior.

Next up, a recent review that updates current scientific evidence regarding the factors involved in explaining gut microbiota composition variation in the same individual and between individuals, both in terms of health and disease. Also in this newsletter, a new study which has now provided the largest ever catalog of human-associated microbes across worldwide populations.

Finally, we have a new article highlighting research that has identified 11 bacterial strains from the human gut microbiota that enhance resistance to Listeria infection and improve the antitumor efficacy of checkpoint inhibitors in mice.

The gut microbiome’s influence on non-communicable diseases and behaviour: main findings of MyNewGut project


Over the past five years, the European Union-funded microbiome project MyNewGut, coordinated by Yolanda Sanz (CSIC, Spain), has looked at the gut microbiota’s influence on...

A new review characterizes intra- and inter-individual factors that modulate a healthy gut microbiota composition


The gut microbiome’s role in health and disease was initially supported by studies that found associations between a given microbial profile and a disease—a large number of diseases have been associated with a...

A large metagenomics project expands human microbial diversity and abundance


Obtaining a close characterization of human microbial diversity and abundance remains a challenge for the researchers of today. In the past, microbial composition was studied using culture-based methods that underestimated...

A defined set of 11 bacterial strains from the human gut can protect against infection and target cancer in mice


One of the important roles played by the gut microbiota involves directing maturation of the mammalian immune system, although the molecular basis involved is still being characterized. As a result...
