Almost 2,000 unknown bacteria discovered in the human gut

Researchers have used computational methods to identify nearly 2,000 uncultured gut bacterial species. Study authors call for more data from South America, Africa and Asia, in order to achieve a more comprehensive blueprint of the human gut. Access to thousands of new gut bacterial genomes allows researchers to characterize the gut microbiota more accurately.
