gutThe gut is home to innumerable different bacteria — a complex ecosystem that has an active role in a variety of bodily functions. In a study published this year in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, a team of researchers finds that in mice, just one of those bacterial species plays a major part in controlling obesity and metabolic disorders such as type 2 diabetes.
