Title: microbiome : Novel gut-microbiota based metagenomic signature for advanced fibrosis in nonalcoholic fatty liver disease      
keywords:
raw sequence reads
ID:
PRJNA373901
description:
The presence of advanced fibrosis in nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is the most important predictor of liver mortality. The aim of this study was to examine the diagnosticaccuracy of a gut-microbiota derived metagenomic signature for detecting the presence of advanced fibrosis in NAFLD. In this prospective study, we characterized the microbiome signatures associated with advanced fibrosis (defined as stage 3 or 4 fibrosis) in uniquely well characterized biopsy- and imaging-phenotyped patients with NAFLD. Gut microbiomecompositions of the patients were determined using whole-genome shotgun sequencing of DNA extracted from stool samples.
