Abstract

The human microbiome comprises the genes and genomes of the microbiota that inhabit the body. We highlight Human Microbiome Project (HMP) resources, including 600 microbial reference genomes, 70 million 16S sequences, 700 metagenomes, and 60 million predicted genes from healthy adult microbiomes. Microbiome studies of specific diseases and future research directions are also discussed.
