Pearls: The Microbiome

Curated Collections

Human-associated microbial communities can include eukaryotes, archaea, bacteria and viruses and provide protection against foreign invaders, stimulate the immune response, produce antimicrobials, and aid in digestion among other functions. Our understanding of the link between the human microbiome and disease is rapidly expanding.

In this collection, PLOS Pathogens presents a range of Pearls articles delving into the current state of knowledge linking the microbiome to human disease.
