In a new study, a group of researchers from the University of Groningen who have joined forces as the Groningen Microbiome Team have shown that your genes influence the composition of your gut microbiome.

The results of the study and a preview of the expected challenges and future perspectives of microbiome studies are published in two articles in Nature Genetics.
