Microbiomes and Metagenomics
Genome Biology Collection
All plants and animals live in close association with a complex community of microbial species. The microbiome can influence host immune and endocrine systems, as well as digestion and metabolism. In this collection, Genome Biology highlights advances in the study of microbial communities, with a focus on the human microbiome and its implications in health and disease. Technological advances for microbiome studies are also included.
