Microbiome in chimps and humans

Hey guys -- 

Not sure if y'all saw the recent study by Ochman and colleagues about comparing the enterotypes between chimps and humans ... The paper came out the day after we talked about it in class. They basically find that humans and chimps share similar enterotypes, which was a crucial factor in human evolution. 

Here's the Yale News link and here's the link for Nature paper.
