Data from: Ovarian cycling and reproductive state shape the vaginal microbiota in wild baboons

Elizabeth A. Miller, Joshua A. Livermore, Susan C. Alberts, Jenny Tung & Elizabeth A. Archie
Background: The vaginal microbiome is an important site of bacterial-mammalian symbiosis. This symbiosis is currently best characterized for humans, where lactobacilli dominate the microbial community and may help defend women against infectious disease. However, lactobacilli do not dominate the vaginal microbiota of any other mammal studied to date, raising key questions about the forces that shape the vaginal microbiome in non-human mammals. Results: We used Illumina sequencing of the bacterial 16S rRNA gene to investigate...
