  • Read the paper this animation is based on: https://doi.org/10.1038/s41598-018-20141-6 In the human gut microbiota, small ecosystems called microbial guilds exists. These guilds share a metabolic process. By using graph theory, we were able to show that a higher species richness within these guilds is directly linked a higher efficiency of the metabolic process and redundancy. This work provides a first step towards a rational approach with respect to microbiota intervention. #science #animation #health
