Skin microbiome bacteria - and bacterial pathways - identified as associated with ageing skin
Article Title: Charting host-microbe co-metabolism in skin aging and application to metagenomics data
Author Countries: The Netherlands, U.S.A.
Funding: Estée Lauder Companies is a company selling skin care products, which partly funded this study and provided the samples for this study. The funder provided support in the form of salaries for authors JB, WA, RTE, SL, FdG and GAMK, but did not have any additional role in the study design for data analysis and interpretation, in data collection and analysis and in preparation of the manuscript. The funder supported the decision to publish the study through co-authors KS and SS. The specific roles of these authors are articulated in the ‘author contributions’ section. TenWise B.V. played no role in funding or decision to publish and is merely mentioned as a current address of one of the NIZO-affiliated co-authors (WA). There are no competing interests with TenWise.
