Varga-Weisz study in the Metro

A review of the potential health benefits of poo transplants in the Metro included mention of work from the Varga-Weisz group from January. Poo transplants - more formally called fecal transplants - are thought to change the types of bacteria living in the gut. The Varga-Weisz group's research didn't include poo transplants but did show that certain bacteria in the gut can change how our genes behave by alterning epigenetic markers.
