Chemical Biology of Microbiomes

Interspecies communication in complex microbiome environments occurs through the small molecules, peptides, and proteins produced by both the host and the microbial residents, as highlighted in this collection of recent articles from Nature Portfolio. The molecular nature of these interactions makes chemical biology approaches well-suited to the study and manipulation of their downstream effects on host health and microbiome composition.
