Happy and healthy holidays from AMI!

It’s been an incredibly exciting year for AMI and we hope that you have been enjoying our blog posts. We appreciate all the feedback from our readers so if you ever have any thoughts, suggestions, or questions, please reach out to us at blog@microbiomeinstitute.org as we love to hear from you.  We will be off through the New Year to rest up and get ready for another exciting year of microbiome science.

The field of microbiome research grows exponentially every year with new breakthroughs and discoveries coming at an accelerated pace. As new tools are developed and as scientists continue to lay the groundwork for the microbiome field, new microbiome discoveries are going to continue rapidly progressing.  We can’t wait to share with you all the exciting developments of 2016.  

To give you an idea of what the future of microbiome may include, here is a link to a fascinating project being carried out by Jeff Tabor’s group at Rice University profiled by Jennifer Ackerman in Scientific American. His group is working to engineer E. coli to manipulate the microbiome and stave off disease in US naval forces.  

Best wishes for happy holidays and a healthy New Year!
