Spektrum der Wissenschaft "Mikrobiom: Unsere Darmvielfalt ist bedroht" mit Alexander Loy [German]

The German science magazine Spektrum der Wissenschaft has interviewed Alexander Loy, University of Vienna for their story on the threatened diversity of the intestinal microbiome (Unsere Darmvielfalt ist bedroht). The microorganisms in the human intestine play an important role for health. But at least in western societies, the microbiome is becoming species-poorer. Scientists are trying to preserve its diversity with special strain collections.
