Conceptual presentation of the sporobiota. The boxes represent different levels of possible sporobiota representation. The global sporobiota comprises the totality of all endospore-forming bacteria. Both the human microbiota and the disease-associated sporobiota (clinical sporobiota) are subsets of the total global sporobiota. The global sporobiota, human sporobiota, disease-associated sporobiota, gut sporobiota and the resistome overlap, as spore-formers play a role in horizontal gene transfer
