The HMP performed whole metagenomic shotgun sequencing (mwgs) on over 1200 samples collected from 15-18 body sites from 300 healthy human subjects. For more detail, see Microbiome Analyses. In addition, HMP Demonstration projects were funded to demonstrate hypothesized correlations between the microbiome and human health and disease. See Impacts on Health for more information about the demonstration projects. Here we provide access to raw mwgs sequence data in fastq format from all HMP samples, including healthy human subjects and demonstration projects. With the exception of a subset of healthy human subject samples (see 'Published Data' tab for more information), these sequence read sets have not been assembled.
