Abstract
The establishment of microbial populations in the gastrointestinal (GI)-tract is a complex process, involving microbial and host interactions eventually resulting in a dense and stable population. Recently, the identification of microbial species from fecal samples has become more accurate with the use of 16S RNA gene-based methods. However, although these molecular-based detection methods have apparent benefits over culture-based techniques, they involve potential pitfalls that should be taken into consideration when studying the fecal microbiota, such as the storage conditions and deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA)-extraction. Therefore, the effects of different stor...
