A new research study finds that the human gut bacteria of today is less diverse than past. This research study, now online in Nature, claims an experience of extinction in the gut microbiome of humans. What further Extinction Event in Gut Microbiome says, let’s see.

A study of 1000-2000 years ancient DNA from feces found in Utah and Mexico cities. This “extinction event” in the microbiome of the human gut is a good look inside the humans of the past.

The current study finds that this extinction event suggests the loss of diverse bacteria from humans, with very few species of today as compared to the past. This study now opens ways to answer the question “how different are humans of today as that of the past?” Are they similar? The answer is a big No.

What does this study say?

This study makes us curious as to find what species cracked by this extinction event? This DNA inspection is also a key to find much more realities of the past about the digestive function of humans. Another fact is that this study gave about 181 genomes, which is a much higher number than any ancient event. This extinction event, although small, is enough for further and farther research studies. These scientists are appreciated for this work.

In the future, it is a clue for scientists to find out more comparison between humans of present time and humans of past time. This extinction event also suggests that we are not similar to humans of the previous millennium.
