The mycobiome of infants is influenced by the mother’s mycobiome and other factors. Fungal genera associated with healthy adults (a) and infants (b). Body sites with an asterisk represent those that have only been characterized by culture or targeted PCR approaches; broad mycobiome surveys are lacking for these sites. Genera noted in bold type represent the dominant genus reported for that body site, as determined by broad mycobiome survey. Taxa listed are derived from targeted studies and broad survey approaches (≥1% of mycobiome) [2, 5, 14, 2226, 2839, 47, 5154]. Also depicted are the major factors thought to influence the infant mycobiome
