Nature Special | 29 May 2019 Human Microbiome Project, part 2

 

The second phase of the 10-year NIH-funded Human Microbiome Project (HMP2) has reached its fruition in the form of a collection of studies addressing the role of the microbiota in inflammatory bowel disease, the onset of type 2 diabetes and in pregnancy and preterm birth. Through the power of multi-omic technologies and clinical analyses, these studies provide the most comprehensive analysis of both the host and the microbiota to date, revealing important insights into the complex interplay between these partners and how this changes over time. The work of the HMP has generated vital resources and analytical tools that continue to fuel progress in the field, and has set a precedent for future human multi-omic studies that strive to integrate basic and clinical science.

We are pleased to present this Nature collection of commentary and research publications from across Naturejournals and related publications from HMP2.

Global change series in Nature Reviews Microbiology

Global change series in Nature Reviews Microbiology

 

Industrialization, urbanization, progress in modern medicine and technological innovations shape our environment and the way we live our lives. However, besides exciting advances, this global change has negative economic, ecological and social effects. What role do microorganisms have in this global challenge? Climate change can affect microbial community structure and function in the ocean and soil and change host-microbiota interactions with potentially severe consequences for food production, carbon cycling and disease spread. By contrast, microorganisms could also be used to mitigate the effects of climate change. An integrated and informed approach is required to scale up our global response to climate change. In this article series, Nature Reviews Microbiology addresses the relationship between microorganisms and global change, and considers the wider environmental and health challenges.

Nature Collection 25 January 2019 Gut Microbiota

 

The microbial communities that inhabit our gastrointestinal tract, termed the gut microbiota, are well known to play a fundamental role in many host processes, and our understanding of these complex communities continues to advance at a rapid pace. Research has characterized the gut microbiota in health and disease at increasing resolution, aided by the continuous development of tools and approaches. Greater mechanistic understanding of how our microbial partners, including the non-bacterial members, contribute to or protect against disease is a major focus of recent initiatives with the ultimate goal of translating these findings into clinical applications.

This collection brings together Research, Reviews and Comment published in several Nature journals covering key topics on the gut microbiota. The selected content has been published over the past year in Nature, Nature Microbiology, Nature Medicine, Nature Genetics, Nature Communications, Nature Reviews Microbiology, Nature Reviews Genetics and Nature Reviews Gastroenterology and Hepatology.

The latest research, reviews and news about the microbiome from across all of the Nature journals

Within the Section "SUBJECTS" of Nature you can access to the latest research, reviews and news from across all of the Nature journals about MICROBIOME here:

This is the definition of Microbiome that Nature editors include in that  section about Microbiome:

"The microbiome comprises all of the genetic material within a microbiota (the entire collection of microorganisms in a specific niche, such as the human gut). This can also be referred to as the metagenome of the microbiota."

This selection of Nature publications about microbiome is separated in 2 sections:

npj Biofilms and Microbiomes

npj Biofilms and Microbiomes

npj Biofilms and Microbiomes is an open access, online-only, multi- and interdisciplinary journal dedicated to publishing the finest research on both microbial biofilms and microbiomes.

The journal hosts cross-disciplinary discussions and allows for our understanding of mechanisms governing the social behaviour of microbial biofilm populations and communities, and their impact on life, human health, and the environment, both natural and engineered.

The scope of npj Biofilms and Microbiomes is to serve as a comprehensive platform to promote biofilms and microbiomes research across a wide spectrum of scientific disciplines. The journal thereby also establishes a platform for cross disciplinary discussions and allow for the understanding of the biology and ecology of biofilms, populations and communities, as well as applications so derived across medical, environmental and engineering domains.

npj Biofilms and Microbiomes is a high quality new Nature Research journal published by Springer Nature in partnership with Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, and is part of the Nature Partner Journals series of titles:

Nature Insight July 2016: Intestinal microbiota in health and disease

Nature Insight July 2016: Intestinal microbiota in health and disease

The intestinal microbiota is associated closely with health and disease. This Insight explores human developmental biology from a microbial perspective; the influence of diet and the microbiota on metabolism; the microbiota and innate immunity; the microbiota and adaptive immunity; how the microbiota and pathogenic bacteria interact in the gut; and the promise of microbiome-wide association studies for precision medicine.

Genome Medicine Special Issue 2016. Translating the microbiome: health and disease.

The era of metagenomics for the characterisation of microbiota has led to a surge in surprising associations of the human microbiome with disease states. However, much remains unknown about what defines a normal microbiome and how perturbation predisposes to disease. To capture the advances in this emerging area, Genome Medicine is pleased to present a special issue focused on Translating the microbiome: health and disease.
