The structure, distribution and evolution of genomic diversity in natural bacterial communities is largely unexplored. Here, I will present our recent work on the honey bee gut microbiota. Using deep metagenomic sampling of individual bees, we have investigated how strain-level diversity distribute among individuals within colonies, and patterns of microbiota evolution in closely related honey bee species
