Advances in next-generation sequencing and computation have elucidated the impact of human genomic variation; however, the impact of this variation is largely unexplored in the human microbiome. Now clinical and environmental researchers have the high-resolution tools to explore the emergent science of microbial communities and the ecosystems they inhabit. CHI's Dynamics of the Microbiome on Health and Disease conference focuses on understanding the role of the microbiome to offer new insights into disease processes and discovery of new therapeutic strategies.
