Human Microbiome Project

The studies, which used multi-omic approaches, are part of the integrative Human Microbiome Project (iHMP) — the second phase of the Human Microbiome Project.

In a study of microbial genome data, researchers noted that many horizontal gene transfer events appeared to occur between different sites within the human body.

Two research groups have cultured and sequenced microbes in fecal samples from healthy volunteers, producing new reference genomes for hundreds of species.

Additional Human Microbiome Project samples have enabled a deeper look into the stability and molecular processes of the microbes that live on and in people.

The developers are offering free single analysis codes to use Nephele as part of a promotion to test the features and feasibility of the system.

At the Personalized Medicine World Conference, researchers talked about how understanding the microbiome is leading to therapies aimed at keeping it healthy.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – In BMC Biology, investigators involved with the Human Microbiome Project discussed the collection of DNA viruses that they found when sampling diverse body sites from more than 100

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – The National Institute of Mental Health will award up to $1 million next fiscal year to fund studies of the ways the human gut microbiome may impact brain development and may be involved in mental health and disorders, NIMH said today.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — For the microbiome, there may be many versions of normal and healthy, according to a new metagenomic analysis by a pair of researchers at the University of Michigan.

The advent of next-generation sequencing technology helped members of the Human Microbiome Project realize the goal of developing a resource representing microbial communities associated with healthy humans, according to HMP consortium member Bruce Birren.
