  • "By leveraging both the metagenomic and traditional approach to genomic DNA sequencing, the Human Microbiome Project will lay the foundation for further studies of human-associated microbial communities. Broadly, the project has set the following goals:
    Determining whether individuals share a core human microbiome
    Understanding whether changes in the human microbiome can be correlated with changes in human health
    Developing the new technological and bioinformatic tools needed to support these goals
    Addressing the ethical, legal and social implications raised by human microbiome research."
