The Microbiome and Its Impact on Human Health

Presentation Date: Tue, 18 August, 2015
Presenter(s): Ruth Ann Luna

Registration: https://www.pathlms.com/asm/courses/3860

Metagenomics has expanded our capabilities to detect and identify the genetic composition of entire communities of microorganisms, including those living on and within the human body. Studies of the human microbiome have provided insightful information on the vital role that microbial communities play in health and disease. The recent availability of next generation sequencing technologies has facilitated this process and may provide the clinical microbiology laboratory with a powerful tool to analyze and better understand the influence resident microbes have on the human body.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Compare microbiome profiles throughout the body.
  2. Identify microbiome signatures associated with disease.
  3. Assess the clinical utility of microbiome characterization as it related to companion diagnostics, treatment selection, prognosis, and microbiome-based therapy.
