Professor Rob Knight, is a pioneer in studying human microbes, the community of tiny single-cell organisms living inside our bodies that have a huge — and largely unexplored — role in our health. “The three pounds of microbes that you carry around with you might be more important than every single gene you carry around in your genome,” he says.

Professor Knight is the co-author, with Brendan Buhler, of Follow Your Gut. The book is available at TED Books, and at online retailers and bookstores, in several formats. The image shown, is the hardback edition.
