Data Model

Much has been learned about the diversity and distribution of human-associated microbial communities, but we still know little about the biology of the microbiome, how it interacts with the host, and how the host responds to its resident microbiota. The iHMP is studying these interactions by creating integrated longitudinal datasets from both the microbiome and host from three different cohort studies of microbiome-associated conditions using multiple ‘omics technologies. Here we describe the three models of microbiome-associated human conditions, and the multi-omic data types to be collected, integrated, and distributed through public repositories as a community resource.
