TitleGut bacteria co-speciated with hominids
Study TypeOther
Abstract The evolutionary origins of the bacterial lineages that populate the human gut are unknown. Here we show that multiple lineages of the predominant bacterial taxa in the gut arose via co-speciation with humans, chimpanzees, bonobos, and gorillas over the past 15 million years.
