Caption: This is a zoom-in on a portion of a community-level metabolic network of the gut microbiome. Nodes represent enzymes and edges connect enzymes that catalyze successive metabolic steps. Enzymes that are associated with obesity appear as larger colored nodes (red=enriched, green=depleted). Nodes outlined in yellow represent topologically-derived network seeds.
