- Bacteroidota, are well-adapted to their human host and can be extremely persistent across individuals, families, and geographic areas. As their human host grow up, these bacteria are able to persist in the gut by switching to different nutrition sources. The researchers named these bacteria “tenacious”.
However, tenacious bacteria are the most likely to be lost from the microbiota after antibiotic use
