And all of this is possible because of the large community of researchers who were just interested in studying microbial diversity and ecology. Who lives where in the human body, how does it differ between people? Between ethnic/cultural groups, etc. Most of the people involved early on weren't directly interested in medical applications but we've now started to discover lots of potential medical applications from it.
