Scientists have found in the gut of an unidentified life form

Eric Batist and Philip Lopes claim they were able to detect in the intestinal group of microorganisms different from normal microflora. Found the form life can hardly be associated with one of the known groups, says Biology Direct.

The weight of all bacteria in the human intestine reaches 2.5 kilograms. The number of bacterial cells exceeds 10 times the number of intestinal cells. Microflora helps in food processing and performs a protective function. The replacement of the normal bacteria and pathogenic forms can lead to serious diseases, which is why scientists and doctors are so attentive to this issue.

Analysis of genes new forms of life showed that nothing like the planet simply no. According to one of the assumptions of single-celled bacteria evolved and formed a more complex shape.
