Microbial chemical ecology in the human microbiome

Jared N. Balaich, Mohamed S. Donia

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


In the sections below, we will discuss small molecules that are produced by members of the human microbiome from four major human body sites: skin, vagina, mouth, and gut. Our focus is on molecules that have been shown to mediate important aspects of microbe-microbe ecological interactions, ranging from cooperation to competition (Fig. 1).
