Table of Contents

Foreword The Human Genome and the Human Microbiome; Contents; Contributors; About the Editor; 1 The Human Genome, Microbiomes, and Disease; References; 2 Host Genotype and the Effect on Microbial Communities; References; 3 The Human Microbiome and Host.
Pathogen Interactions; References; 4 The Human Virome; References; 5 Selection and Sequencing of Strains as References for Human Microbiome Studies; References; 6 The Human Vaginal Microbiome; References; 7 The Human Lung Microbiome; References; 8 The Human Skin Microbiome in Health and Skin Diseases; References; 9 The Human Oral Metagenome. The book brings a completely different perspective than available books by combining the information gained from the human genome with that derived from parallel metagenomic studies, and new results from investigating the effects of these microbes on the host immune system. Although there are a number of books that focus on the human genome that are currently available, there are no books that bring to the forefront the mix of the human genome and the genomes and metagenomes of the microbial species that live within and on us.
