    • Alterations of the human gut microbiome in multiple sclerosis 

      Jangi, Sushrut; Gandhi, Roopali; Cox, Laura M.; Li, Ning; von Glehn, Felipe; Yan, Raymond; Patel, Bonny; Mazzola, Maria Antonietta; Liu, Shirong; Glanz, Bonnie L.; Cook, Sandra; Tankou, Stephanie; Stuart, Fiona; Melo, Kirsy; Nejad, Parham; Smith, Kathleen; Topçuolu, Begüm D.; Holden, James; Kivisäkk, Pia; Chitnis, Tanuja; De Jager, Philip L.; Quintana, Francisco J.; Gerber, Georg K.; Bry, Lynn; Weiner, Howard L. (Nature Publishing Group, 2016)
      The gut microbiome plays an important role in immune function and has been implicated in several autoimmune disorders. Here we use 16S rRNA sequencing to investigate the gut microbiome in subjects with multiple sclerosis ...
    • Genomically Informed Surveillance for Carbapenem-Resistant Enterobacteriaceae in a Health Care System 

      Pecora, Nicole D.; Li, Ning; Allard, Marc; Li, Cong; Albano, Esperanza; Delaney, Mary; Dubois, Andrea; Onderdonk, Andrew B.; Bry, Lynn (American Society of Microbiology, 2015)
      ABSTRACT Carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE) are an urgent public health concern. Rapid identification of the resistance genes, their mobilization capacity, and strains carrying them is essential to direct hospital ...
    • HIV burden in men who have sex with men: a prospective cohort study 2007–2012 

      Jia, Zhongwei; Huang, Xiaojie; Wu, Hao; Zhang, Tong; Li, Ning; Ding, Peipei; Sun, Yixuan; Liu, Zhiying; Wei, Feili; Zhang, Hongwei; Jiao, Yanmei; Ji, Yunxia; Zhang, Yonghong; Guo, Caiping; Li, Wei; Mou, Danlei; Xia, Wei; Li, Zhen; Chen, Dexi; Yan, Huiping; Chen, Xinyue; Zhao, Jinkou; Meyers, Kathrine; Cohen, Ted; Mayer, Kenneth Hugh; Salomon, Joshua A.; Lu, Zuhong; Dye, Christopher (Nature Publishing Group, 2015)
      We conducted a prospective cohort study among HIV-negative MSM aged 18 years or older between 2007 and 2012 in Beijing, China to measure the rates of incident HIV and identify risk factors for infection. Among 5,800 ...
    • Improving microbial fitness in the mammalian gut by in vivo temporal functional metagenomics 

      Yaung, Stephanie J; Deng, Luxue; Li, Ning; Braff, Jonathan L; Church, George M; Bry, Lynn; Wang, Harris H; Gerber, Georg K (BlackWell Publishing Ltd, 2015)
      Elucidating functions of commensal microbial genes in the mammalian gut is challenging because many commensals are recalcitrant to laboratory cultivation and genetic manipulation. We present Temporal FUnctional Metagenomics ...
    • MDSINE: Microbial Dynamical Systems INference Engine for microbiome time-series analyses 

      Bucci, Vanni; Tzen, Belinda; Li, Ning; Simmons, Matt; Tanoue, Takeshi; Bogart, Elijah; Deng, Luxue; Yeliseyev, Vladimir; Delaney, Mary L.; Liu, Qing; Olle, Bernat; Stein, Richard R.; Honda, Kenya; Bry, Lynn; Gerber, Georg K. (BioMed Central, 2016)
      Predicting dynamics of host-microbial ecosystems is crucial for the rational design of bacteriotherapies. We present MDSINE, a suite of algorithms for inferring dynamical systems models from microbiome time-series data and ...
