The Home Microbiome Project

EZ Diet Note:  Try not to think about a hotel room or vacation rental during this 2.5 minute video.  Of course, maybe its healthy to spend time in a microbial orgy occasionally. There are probably several industries that don’t really want this information readily available, I’m sure.

The Home Microbiome Project is an initiative aimed at uncovering the dynamic co-associations between people’s bacteria and the bacteria found in their homes.

The hope is that the data and project will show that routine monitoring of the microbial diversity of your body and of the environment in which you live is possible.
