Microbiome is a joint venture between the UW Biotechnology Center (UWBC) and the Wisconsin Institute for Discovery (WID), making use of current prowess at UWBC in sequencing and bioinformatics and WID’s strength in data storage and management. Hub will support researchers in diverse fields at UW-Madison, who have no training in microbiology or bioinformatics, to routinely examine the microbiome in their studies. Clinical researchers could determine whether the human microbiome is associated with drug efficacy, ecologists could determine what microbial species are associated with endangered plants, and engineers could determine the impact of building modifications on the microbiome of the spaces they design.

  • Provide consultation for microbiome project development
  • Provide cutting edge microbiome informatics and analysis
  • Support collaborative grant funded investigations
  • Foster collaborative initiatives in microbiome science

Microbiome Hub is sustained by a fee-for-service model and grant-incorporated effort levels. It support analysis, administrative tasks, high throughput computing and data storage
