Urban Metagenomics

The human body is made up not only of the „human“ multi-cell organisms, but also of a variety of single-cell organisms. The various organisms that live in and on the human body make up the human microbiome. As a result, each one of us is essentially a superorganism, with life inside and on us that keeps us healthy, can make us sick, and may well be at the root of so much of our overall health. Scientific advances have made it possible to research microbes previously invisible to us. Microbes have different origins, but the majority is propagated through what we touch and breathe. Consequently, four different research groups in the US have committed their research to the urban microbiome. They are interested in learning more about whether microbial communities differ across urban landscapes, and how this might affect human health in invisible, powerful and surprising ways.
