Welcome to the Data Analysis and Coordination Center (DACC) for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Common Fund supported Human Microbiome Project (HMP). This site is the central repository for all HMP data. The aim of the HMP is to characterize microbial communities found at multiple human body sites and to look for correlations between changes in the microbiome and human health. More information can be found in the menus above and on the NIH Common Fund site.GET DATA GET TOOLS
Single isolate sequencing of cultured & uncultured microbes collected from human body sites to facilitate phylogenetic characterization and functional annotation of metagenomic sequences... Human Microbial Sampling
16S RNA and whole metagenome sequencing of samples collected from 300 healthy human participants, to characterize complexity of microbial communities at individual body sites and to provide insights into functions performed by the human microbiome... Project Demonstrations
Demonstration projects to determine the relationship between human health and changes in the human microbiome through the use of 16S and whole metagenome sequencing of clinical samples of interest... Technology Development
