Feeding strategy shapes gut metagenomic enrichment and functional specialization in captive lemurs

McKenney, Erin A; O’Connell, Thomas; Rodrigo, Allen; Yoder, Anne D

Description

Many studies have demonstrated the effects of host diet on gut microbial membership, metagenomics, and fermentation individually; but few have attempted to interpret the relationship among these biological phenomena with respect to host features (e.g. gut morphology). We quantitatively compare the fecal microbial communities, metabolic pathways, and fermentation products associated with the nutritional intake of frugivorous (fruit-eating) and folivorous (leaf-eating) lemurs. Our results provide...[Show more]
