Abstract

This project aims to apply recently developed culturing methods to archive and phenotype bacterial species found in the human gut in a representative sample from metropolitan, rural and indigenous Australians. This project expects to isolate, genome sequence, classify, characterize and permanently archive 1500 bacterial species. Expected outcomes of this project include detailed knowledge of previously undiscovered bacterial species, improved methods to measure the bacterial species that inhabit the human gut and a detailed understanding of the gut microbiota of Australians. This project should significantly enhance our knowledge of bacterial diversity and evolution and provide detailed insi..
