Personalization Of Microbiome Analysis: Why A Longitudinal Multi-Omics And Flobal Approach Is A Must?

We have to study personalized microbiome within a comparable population database to gather proper insights. We will present multi-omics data (including human and food microbiome) that highlight this complex but necessary to address challenge.
