CAMBRIDGE, Mass.—A team of scientists from MIT and the Broad Institute recently isolated and preserved samples of 7,758 strains of bacteria from the human digestive tract, with 3,632 strains having their full genomes sequenced. The dataset, BIO-ML, is available to other researchers. The team now hopes to collect samples from a more diverse set of people from around the world in a larger project, with a focus on individuals from nonindustrialized societies.
 
“Comprehensive and high-resolution collections of bacterial isolates open the possibility to mechanistically investigate how our lifestyle shapes our gut microbiome, metabolism and inflammation. We aim to provide such a resource to the research community worldwide, including to lower-income research institutions,” said MIT research associate Mathieu Groussin, a lead author of the study.
