Tool to understand how the gut microbiome works

Most of the genes in the human body do not come from human cells, researchers say, but are found within the trillions of microbes that live on or within the human body, particularly in the gut. Working out the functions of these microbial genes is a big challenge because many of the microbes that live within us are extremely reluctant to grow when cultured under laboratory conditions. Now researchers report that they have discovered a way to study the functions of hard-to-grow bacteria that contribute to the composition of the gut microbiome.
