Experimental analysis of gut microbial communities and their interactions with vertebrate hosts is conducted predominantly in domesticated animals that have been maintained in laboratory facilities for many generations. These animal models are useful for studying coevolved relationships between host and microbiota only if the microbial communities that occur in animals in lab facilities are representative of those that occur in nature. We performed 16S rRNA gene sequence-based comparisons ofdoi:10.1038/ismej.2011.38 pmid:21472014 pmcid:PMC3176511 fatcat:6nrpjltvwfbojebdfpnbmkw4ny
