Human Microbiome Studies

Intro: 

As a leading genomics research organization, the J. Craig Venter Institute has numerous projects and programs that are focused on this emerging research area to identify and characterize the human microbiome—the microbial populations that natively inhabit the human body—and to determine its role in health and disease. JCVI led the foray into this field with a seminal publication in 2006 and has since developed many active areas of research with various clinical sites. Here we outline these projects which investigate the relationship between human health and disease and how this correlates with changes in the human microbiome.
