What's it all about?

15th May - The Microbiome (Wellcome Genome Campus)

How do we know what microbes are living in our gut? Metagenomics, the analysis of the sum of genetic material from a sample, has started to shed light on the huge diversity of micro-organisms that occupy environments such as the human body, soil and the world’s oceans.

Dr Rob Finn from EMBL-EBI will talk about discuss the diversity of the human microbiome and how bioinformatics tools can help us to identify what is living in our gut.
