Over the last 20 years, advances in sequencing technologies have propelled the microbiome field forward and revealed the importance of the commensal intestinal microbiota in health and disease. Groups who adopted these technologies earlier on published novel studies describing compositional differences in cases vs. controls in the context of different diseases, and these findings have led to more refined investigations of specific mechanistic pathways that are critical for leveraging these technologies for precision medicine applications.
However, the microbiome field is still evolving, becoming incorporated into new areas of clinical study and developing standards for scientific rigor, which investigations will yield new and important insights, but fail to discretely address mechanistic directions.
Gut Microbes Reports fills the need for a well-respected and highly visible journal which features rigorous, clinically translational studies that reflect developing topics in the microbiome and related fields.
Rather than these studies being published in esoteric, specialized journals, dividing content over multiple sources and diluting important similarities and differences among studies, Gut Microbes Reports will provide a robust home for this work as the go-to first choice for translational research from new investigators or those exploring new areas, making all researchers feel engaged and considered.
