5 Ways Sleep And Microbiome Are Interrelated With Immunity And Cognition

The effect of sleep on the microbiome of the host has been a topic of interest among researchers for the past several years. Studies have yielded opposing results in how short sleep affects the microbiome. While some showed a significant change in Firmicutes to Bacteroidetes ratio, others found no microbial change following short-term sleep restriction.

Harnessing the power of RNA for a healthy gut microbiome

I was a scientist at Los Alamos National Lab in the US when I identified a science-based personalized diet that completely cured my early onset arthritis. I realized that the gut microbiome would play a central role in personalized nutrition and redirected all my science projects towards it. We desperately needed better technology for analysing the gut microbiome and metatranscriptomics offers the best value. It is better than 16S or metagenomic sequencing in two important aspects:

Looking beyond the bacterial gut microbiome

Most microbiome research to date has focused on the bacterial gut microbiome, and yet microbiomes are comprised of a wide array of microbes – from viruses and archaea to protozoa and yeasts – and colonize nearly every human body site – from the skin and lungs to the urogenital system and breast milk.
