Panel: The Integrative Human Microbiome Project (iHMP)
The Integrative Human Microbiome Project (iHMP) is the second phase of the National Institute of Health (NIH) Common Fund's Human Microbiome Project (HMP) program. The mission of the overall HMP is to generate resources to permit comprehensive characterization of the human microbiota to further our understanding of how the microbiome impacts human health and disease. In this phase of the program, the iHMP is creating integrated longitudinal datasets of biological properties from both the microbiome and host from three different cohort studies of microbiome-associated conditions using multiple "omics" technologies. Tools, datasets and other resources from the first phase of the project are available at the HMP DACC. The three iHMP projects have recently completed primary data generation and are entering an initial analysis phase, and this session will detail the data and resources made available to the research community by: 1) the Multi-Omic Microbiome Study: Pregnancy Initiative (MOMS-PI) at Virginia Commonwealth University, 2) the Inflammatory Bowel Disease Multi'omic Data (IBDMDB) resource from the Broad Institute and a nation-wide research tam, and 3) Integrated Personal 'Omics Profiling (IPOP) from Stanford University and the Jackson Laboratory for Genomic Medicine. For more information or to get involved with the iHMP, please see http://hmp2.org.
