The Microbiome and us

Dr. William A. Peck, director of the Center for Health Policy at the Washington University School of Medicine says in "The Microbiome: A Mediator of Human Wellness," that an understanding the human microbiome the tens of trillions of microbes inhabiting our bodies has expanded dramatically through the use of advanced technologies that have increased the mounting evidence of the microbiome's role in human health and disease.

Advanced technologies, particularly culture independent DNA sequencing and computational analytics have been valuable, according to Peck. An innovative research technology called "highly parallel DNA sequencing" allows for simultaneous analysis for standardized data across multiple samples. What additional research may tell us about the function and benefits of the microbiome is critical to future health care, he says.

"Additional research on microbiome manipulations may well yield novel preventive strategies and treatments," Peck concludes.
