Abstract

Although the microbiota protects the host from infection, pathogens are still able to colonize and cause disease. In this issue of Cell Host & Microbe, Maier et al. (2013) provide mechanistic insight into the initial stages of Salmonella growth in the gut, showing that microbiota-derived hydrogen provides an energy boost to Salmonella.
