    Bisanz et al. focus on an in-depth study of Eggerthella lenta and the Coriobacteriia class: highly prevalent members of the human gut microbiota which have been poorly described. Through construction of a paired isolate and genome library, they validate tools for comparative genomic approaches to uncover effectors of xenobiotic metabolism and fitness.
