Topic Information

Dear Colleagues,

The advent of high-throughput technologies has significantly contributed to expanding our knowledge on the composition of the resident microbiota of different human niches, including the gut, skin, and genital tract, in health as well as disease conditions. In this regard, in recent years, the microbiota has been involved in several pathologies, such as bacterial as well as viral infections (e.g., Chlamydia trachomatis and/or HPV in the female genital tract) or chronic inflammatory conditions (e.g., diabetes, obesity, chronic atrophic gastritis or non-atrophic pangastritis). The growing body of data provided by the different approaches for microbiota investigation, such as DNA sequences from next-generation sequencing techniques, can be analyzed via several powerful computational methods to provide a comprehensive description of the bacterial composition as well as a functional characterization via the prediction of metabolic pathways. In the present topic collection, we welcome innovative articles on the interrelationship between the different microbial communities and the pathophysiology of human diseases. We are interested in full-length manuscripts based on original research, systematic reviews and/or meta-analyses, and methodological advances.
