DNA-based approaches have enabled the multifaceted role of microbes for the fitness and performance of their host to be revealed. The increasing recognition of the crucial role of microorganisms for the fitness and performance of plants and animals has led to the concepts of holobiont (i.e., a host and its microbiota), and hologenome (i.e., the collective genomes of a holobiont). Here a brief review is provided of the advances that have been made in this field by using DNA-based approaches. Chapter 16 “Host-associated microbiota” summarizes this area of research by presenting past and recent major findings, as well as new research avenues for unraveling host-microbiota interactions in non-model animals and plants.

Keywords:   Microbe, Host, Hologenome, host–microbiota interactions, holobiont
