Microbiome Symposium: Advances in Microbiome Research

 

The grand vision of microbiome research is to produce predictive models for the operation of the human gut ecosystem and to apply new insights and develop novel methods for human clinical studies and interventions. The Microbiome Symposium will feature 11 presentations by leading researchers from across the globe who are generating the data and tools necessary for such model and method development.
