The world of microorganisms has been found to be surprisingly diverse in the human gastrointestinal (GI) tract, where the microbiota amounts to a mass of several kilograms. In addition to the large numbers of microorganisms is the coexistence, even cooperation and mutualism, between the human body and the world of gut microbes.
