We know that most sites of the body that were thought to be sterile actually harbour low numbers of microorganisms. These sites, also know as low microbial biomass environments are highly prone to background levels of DNA from reagents, equipment, and even on surfaces and in the air. When this background level of DNA has been accounted for, we can start to better understand the change in microbial structure of human low microbial biomass environments when we are exposed to different outside environments, disease, and medical treatment.
