Owen White and Dirk Gevers discuss the HMP on Wisconsin Public Radio

(this is a previously recorded program, originally aired on 6/20/12)Our bodies carry enough microbes to outnumber our human cells by 10 to 1. This hour, Kathleen Dunn is joined by two researchers from the Human Microbiome Project, a research collaboration that is attempting to map, for the first time, the microbes that live in and on the human body. http://hmpdacc.org/ Guests:- Owen R. White, Professor, Epidemiology and Public Health, and Associate Director, Institute for Genome Sciences, University of Maryland School of Medicine. - Dirk Gevers, Group Leader, Microbial Systems & Communities, The Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard. more

Expanding Knowledge about the Human Microbiome Will Lead to New Clinical Pathology Laboratory Tests

Research into the human microbiome is expected to trigger development of new diagnostic tests that will be offered by clinical pathology laboratories. That's because the organisms that live on us and in us are as unique to individuals as their DNA, and scientists believe these microbes may be just as important to health. more

Interactions between human and microbial cells determine health, physical well-being: Researchers

At birth, your body was 100-percent human in terms of cells. At death, about 10-percent of the cells in your body will be human and the remaining 90-percent will be microorganisms. That makes you a "supraorganism," and it is the interactions between your human and microbial cells that go a long way towards determining your health and physical well-being, especially your resistance to infectious diseases. more
