Baseline #Gut Metagenomic Functional Gene Signature Associated with Variable #Weight Loss Responses following a Healthy Lifestyle Intervention in Humans

Recent human feeding studies have shown how the baseline taxonomic composition of the gut microbiome can determine responses to weight loss interventions. However, the functional determinants underlying this phenomenon remain unclear. We report a weight loss response analysis on a cohort of 105 individuals selected from a larger population enrolled in a commercial wellness program, …
