Mobile genetic elements in the gut microbiome of human populations

Alexander Tyakht

While the taxonomic structure of gut microbiome in the world human populations has been outlined, its subspecies-level genomic richness in the context of co-evolution with the host, particularly the variability of its extrachromosomal content, is still to be elucidated. Using the state-of-art bionformatic pipelines and algorithms, the diversity of mobile genetic elements (plasmids, phages) will be analyzed.
