Section edited by Souhaila Al Khodor
The Translational Metagenomics section aims to embrace studies addressing the role of the human microbiome in health and disease. This section encompasses studies about the development and application of metagenomics, metatranscriptomics, microbial metabolomics or novel bioinformatics tools used to improve our knowledge on the microbiome.
The Translational Metagenomics section is especially interested in studies that go beyond description of the microbial composition and include experimental models used to support the proposed role of the microbiome in human health and diseases. In addition, studies about metagenomics integration with other omics are highly recommended. Studies of pathogens interaction with the host will not be considered.
