Emory Microbiome Research Center

We are pleased to announce the formation of the Emory Microbiome Research Center. This is an important Emory-wide initiative launched with the goal of bringing together Emory investigators doing microbiome-related research. We are planning a number of events to provide them with opportunities to learn about microbiome research conducted at Emory and to foster collaborative projects, as well as to provide input regarding resources needed to support the research area.

Special Issue on Microbiome Biology

Genome Biology and BMC Biology are pleased to share with you our special issue on Microbiome Biology.

 Microbiome research is helping us to understand the pervasive influence of microbial life on ourselves and our living planet. Recent advances in sequencing, proteomic, and metabolomic technologies, as well as analytical and computational tools, are generating valuable insights into the biology of microbial communities, and their impact on their surroundings and their hosts. Microbiome research has thus integrated the diverse fields of microbiology, genomics, bioinformatics, cell and developmental biology and health and medicine, among others.

This special issue captures some of the progress being made in a field of research that has infiltrated traditional life science domains and changed our perception of organismal biology. The series has been guest edited by Rob Knight, Ruth Ley, Elizabeth Grice, and Jeroen Raes.
