The HMP performed 16S short variable region sequencing on over 10,000 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. Here we provide access to raw 16S reads and metadata from all samples, including healthy human subjects and demonstration projects. Raw reads are available as a single .sff file per SRA run (SRR). Metadata is available as a compressed directory of library metadata (.lmd) files, with one file per run. Metadata fields include NCBI SRA run accession, sequencing center, barcode and primer information, and body site. See the SOP for a complete list of fields contained in this file.
Trimmed, deconvoluted 16S fasta files are available at HM16STR.
