First study of Inuit’s microbiome
February 22, 2017

Catherine Girard, a Université de Montréal doctoral student in Environmental Biology under the supervision of Marc Amyot, is known in Resolute (Nunavut) as the « Poop lady » ever since she collected stool samples for her study of Inuit microbiome. Catherine compared the Inuit microbiome to that of Montréal residents and was surprised to find that differences between the two were also impossible to detect. These results were recently published in the scientific journal MSphere. Unsurprisingly, her research has attracted much media attention.
