Here’s a cool YouTube video recently posted by the Knight Lab (thanks to Dr. Seth Bordenstein for posting this on his blog). It shows the trajectory of a vaginally delivered infant’s gut microbiota over the first 27 months of life. (I think it would be cool to show a Cesarian delivered baby’s gut microbiota too!) Visualized with QIIME.
Our group has similar videos of how the vaginal microbiota changes in women over a time course of frequent sampling. I should convince them to post on YouTube, too.
