Project Contact: Huiying Li (firstname.lastname@example.org)
The human microbiome plays important roles in human physiology and has become a new exciting research field in recent years. Our group studies the human skin microbiome and oral microbiome and their associations with diseases. This project will develop a database for the metagenomic data and genome data that we obtained to study the disease associations.
