  • Highest microbial diversity was detected in the study subjects living in rural low altitude areas. Furthermore, compared to the gut microbiome of Leh subjects, people living in the Ballabhgarh region harbor large number of genes that are linked with the membrane transport, carbohydrate metabolism, lipid metabolism, ion-channels and signal transduct...
  • hese observations emphasize the importance of numerous common environmental exposures in shaping gut microbial ecology. Moreover, the similarity in overall pattern of the community structure suggest that despite the large influence of cultural factors, the similarity among members of each population across the three populations studied are remarkab...
  • The minimal representation of Proteobacteria in the gut of Leh population is very attractive and representing a potential source of healthy gut microbiota in fecal microbiome transplantation-based therapeutics. Although all three groups had healthy individuals, yet rural community from low altitude areas had a unique microbiome characterized not on...
