Data from: Metatranscriptomics of the human oral microbiome during health and disease

Peter Jorth, Keith H. Turner, Pinar Gumus, Nejat Nizam, Nurcan Buduneli & Marvin Whiteley
The human microbiome plays important roles in health, but when disrupted these same indigenous microbes can cause disease. The composition of the microbiome changes during the transition from health to disease; however, these changes are often not conserved among patients. Since microbiome-associated diseases like periodontitis cause similar patient symptoms despite inter-patient variability in microbial community composition, we hypothesized that human-associated microbial communities undergo conserved changes in metabolism during disease. Here we used patient-matched healthy and...
