Friendly microbes control intestinal genes.


A paper in the Feb. 2 issue of Science reports the use of new molecular technologies for unraveling the age-old mystery of the relationships between ourselves and the microbes that live in our body. The study reveals that microorganisms in the gut influence the expression of a number of genes that are important to intestinal development and function.
