Scientists have applied a new technique to comprehensively analyze the human oral microbiome - providing greater knowledge of the diversity of the bacteria in the mouth. For the first-time, scientists can provide high-resolution bacterial classification at the sub-species level, and they uncovered closely related, previously indistinguishable bacteria living in different parts of the human mouth. This work will enable researchers to more closely examine the role of bacterial communities in health and disease.

The study, "Oligotyping analysis of the human oral microbiome," will be published in theProceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. For this project, Gary Borisy, Senior Research Investigator, Department of Microbiology at Forsyth collaborated with Drs. A. Murat Eren and Jessica L. Mark Welch at Marine Biological Laboratory and Dr. Susan M. Huse at Brown University.
