High-resolution tracking of microbial colonization in Fecal Microbiota Transplantation experiments via metagenome-assembled genomes.

Lee, S. T. M., Kahn, S. A., Delmont, T. O., Hubert, N. A., Morrison, H. G., Antonopoulos, D. A., Rubin, D. T., and Eren, A. M.
- An FMT study with metagenome-assembled genomes (MAGs). Bacteroidales: high-colonization rate, Clostridiales: low colonization rate.
- Colonization success is negatively correlated with the number of genes related to sporulation.
- MAGs with the same taxonomy showed different colonization properties, highlighting the limitation of low-resolution approaches.
