From the Ted Talk by Rob Knight: How our microbes make us who we are

Unscramble the Blue Letters

And this is not to say that two people look basailcly the same in the same body habitat, either. So you probably haerd that we're pretty much all the same in terms of our human DNA. You're 99.99 percent inatdciel in terms of your hamun DNA to the person sitting next to you. But that's not true of your gut microbes: you might only share 10 percent similarity with the person sinttig next to you in terms of your gut microbes. So that's as different as the bacteria on this prairie and the bacteria in this forest.

Original Text

And this is not to say that two people look basically the same in the same body habitat, either. So you probably heard that we're pretty much all the same in terms of our human DNA. You're 99.99 percent identical in terms of your human DNA to the person sitting next to you. But that's not true of your gut microbes: you might only share 10 percent similarity with the person sitting next to you in terms of your gut microbes. So that's as different as the bacteria on this prairie and the bacteria in this forest.
