Abstract

In 2013, studies in rodents and humans have reaffirmed the essential role of the gut microbiota in host metabolism. More importantly, several converging results have increased our knowledge regarding the taxa and functions of the gut microbiota that contribute to the management of energy homeostasis, glucose metabolism and metabolic inflammation.
