Abstract:Gut microbiota has been the subject of various molecular studies mainly due to
its importance and wide-ranging relationships with human hosts. However, the
storage of fecal samples prior to DNA extraction is critical when characterizing
the composition of intestinal microbiota. Therefore, we aimed to understand the
effects of different fecal storage methods to characterize intestinal microbiota
using Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) as well as to establish an alternative
conservation method of bacterial geneti… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
