Super Session 2

Microbiome: The New Genetics?

Super Session 2

13:45 - 15:00 Plenary Room

The human microbiome is considered to be a counterpart to the human genome, with the number of genes in our microbiome outnumbering the genes in our genome by 100 to 1. We also know that understanding and thus balancing our microbiome is vital to human health, and that our microbes are impacted on a community rather than individual-level. In this session, we will hear from some of the world’s leaders on the state of microbiome research, as well as how research findings are impacting our approach to disease development and treatment.
