Description

We investigated whether skin barrier disturbance or skin barrier repair responses affect the host microbiome. Furthermore, we investigated how microbiota composition differed between layers of the stratum corneum and how these relate to recolonization patterns observed after its removal by tape stripping. To this end, we have used barcoded 454-pyrosequencing of the V3-V4 region of the 16S rRNA gene.
