Microbiome and epigenetics

In the recent years the fields of human epigenetics and human microbiome research have received significant attention. The ultimate environmental trigger for development is the host-associated microbiome. It has also been proved that the gut microbiome and cancer is linked. Certain microbial species are existing more commonly in cancer tissue than in flanking normal tissue throughout the development of disease, from early cancer growth to metastasisepigenetic processes, because of its spatial site and capability to convert environmental and diet-derived compounds before they reach human cells. The relationship between the gut microbiome and disease associate both the microbiome composition in general and specific microbial species in disease.
