The Latest News from the Human Microbiome Project

The NIH Human Microbiome Project has been a 5-year endeavor to produce community resources to support the field of human microbiome research. Although the HMP has already produced hundreds of peer-reviewed publications, in the past week 2 major HMP Consortium papers as well as 20+ companion papers were published in prestigious journals highlighting a broad analysis of the microbiomes of over 200 healthy adult men and women, the largest such study to date. Participants highlight and discuss some of the findings from this landmark study.
