Microbiome science seeks to understand the roles of microbial communities in hosts and habitats throughout our planet. This field has grown immensely with discoveries that clarify the diversity, ubiquity, and global importance of microbes.



Despite their importance to life on Earth, we know very little about how microbes interact with each other, their hosts, or their environment.

The UCR Microbiome Initiative will help scholars and institutions (Colleges and Schools) to advance the science and bring greater understanding of useful applications in areas such as health care, agriculture, food production and environmental restoration.
