Editorial: Revisiting enterotypes: a viral perspective

Abstract

When first presented, the idea that all human gut microbiomes belong to one of three‘enterotypes’ [1] hit a collective nerve and stimulated an important debate within the field. Taken at face value, the enterotypes model offers an intuitive and attractive way to stratify individuals based on microbial community composition. The ability to stratify individuals based on their gut microbiome composition is opening up intriguing options for applying personalised diagnostics, prognostics, and treatment approaches for a number of diseasesas well as for general well-being.
