We are not alone. When we look around the earth, we see a vast array of different kinds of organisms. Besides visible plants and animals, there is an even more vast world of microscopic bacteria, single celled organisms, and viruses that are essential to all forms of life, on every part of the planet. Every human being is colonized with as many non-human microorganisms as human cells.
Recently, advances in next-generation genetic sequencing methods and decreases in computational costs have allowed this world of non-human microorganisms to be studied and understood in ways never before possible, yielding rich new biomarkers and a wealth of new biological information. At Cybele Microbiome, we are business savvy scientists harnessing our expertise in the microbiome, and creating valuable new products.
NICOLE SCOTT, PhD, MPH
