Genetic Variation Shapes Murine Gut Microbiota via Immunity

Research output: Contribution to journalShort surveypeer-review

6 Scopus citations


Host genetics influence gut microbiome composition. However, determining the specific physiological mechanisms and microbes affected has been difficult due to ‘cage’ and ‘legacy’ effects in model systems. Recently, Khan et al. cleverly colonized ex-germ-free mice to demonstrate that immune genes regulate select bacterial lineages in the mouse gut.
