"Rethinking Enterotypes" a featured article, Cell Host & Microbe

Square peg in a round hole? See our treatment of the pros and cons of discrete enterotype analysis in Cell Host & Microbe here.

Abstract:

Classification of the human gut microbiome into distinct types, or “enterotypes,” provides an attractive framework for understanding microbial variation in health and disease. However, as discussed here, several different methods of collapsing enterotype variation into a few discrete clusters suggest that enterotype distribution is continuous and can vary widely within an individual.
