Program Snapshot

The Common Fund's Human Microbiome Project (HMP) program (FY2007-2015) aims to develop tools and datasets for the research community for studying the role of these microbes in human health and disease. The first phase of HMP (FY2007-2012) characterized the composition and diversity of microbial communities which inhabit major mucosal surfaces of the human body, including nasal passages, oral cavities, skin, gastrointestinal tract, and urogenital tract, and evaluated the genetic metabolic potential of these communities. The current phase of HMP (FY2013-2015) is focused on the creation of the first integrated dataset of biological properties from both the microbiome and host from cohort studies of microbiome-associated diseases.

New findings lead scientists to a better understanding of an elusive microbe and oral healthNew Findings Lead Scientists to a Better Understanding of an Elusive Microbe and Oral Health

 

A team of scientists at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) funded by the NIH Common Fund Human Microbiome Project (HMP) have made new discoveries about a microbe that is important in human oral health. Using cutting-edge technology, the team was able to complete full sequencing of the genome from a single cell.

bei resources

The Human Microbiome (HMP) Strain Repository at BEI resources (managed by the ATCC) currently houses 100 top priority strains available for immediate delivery to researchers and over 400 archived strains. Additionally, 300 strains are in production. There is no cost for the strains or shipping and handling costs associated with requests.

HMP

Human body: nasal passages, oral cavities, skin, gastrointestinal tract, and urogenital tract.

Researchers in the HMP are sampling and analyzing the genome of microbes from five sites on the human body: nasal passages, oral cavities, skin, gastrointestinal tract, and urogenital tract.
