Summary of Meeting:
This Keystone Symposia meeting brings together experts in clinical medicine, clinical microbiology, microbial genomics, and bacterial genetics to explore how both strain variation and underlying microbial community determine health and disease. Genomic advances provide higher-level resolution to both pathogen and host genetic determinants. This meeting aims to explore how monitoring and potentially altering the microbial community may modulate and predict disease risk.
