Moving from Louis Pasteur to CSI: A First Look At Healing and Non-Healing wound "Phenotypes"?

This interesting manuscript by Wong, Manikam and Muniandy show, like some previous manuscripts before, apparent differences in microbial makeup between “healing” and “non-healing” wounds. They suggest that, although some primer techniques/technologies need improvement, even the most simple and ubiquitous 16s rDNA sequencing may be useful in these populations. 

Perhaps we will emerge with a clearer picture of wound “microbial phenotypes” as we have discussed earlier

For more information about community profiling and metagenomics, have a look at our manuscript here.
