Study Description

Microbiome research is starting to move beyond the exploratory phase towards interventional trials and therefore well-characterized cohorts will be instrumental for generating hypothesis and providing new knowledge. As part of the Estonian Biobank, we established the Estonian Microbiome Cohort which includes stool, oral and plasma samples from 2,509 participants and is supplemented with multi-omic measurements, questionnaires, and regular linkages to national electronic health records. In this study, we analyzed stool data from deep metagenomic sequencing together with rich phenotyping, including 71 diseases, 136 medications, 21 dietary questions, 5 procedures, and 19 other factors. The data revealed numerous relationships with different microbiome features. Additionally, the long-term antibiotic usage, independent from recent administration, has a significant impact on the microbiome composition, partly explaining the common associations between diseases. Overall, this study extends the understanding of microbiome–host interactions and facilitates the development of ... (Show More)

Dataset ID Description Technology Samples
Stool samples were collected from 2,509 Estonian Biobank participants. The shotgun metagenomic paired-end sequencing was performed by Novogene Bioinformatics Technology Co., Ltd. using the Illumina NovaSeq6000 platform, resulting in 4.62 ± 0.44 Gb of data per sample (insert size, 350 bp; read length, 2 × 250 bp). A total of 2,513 samples belonging to 2,509 individuals were sequenced, including 4 biological replicates from one individual. First, the reads were trimmed for quality and adapter ... (Show More)
