BioFutures: Exploring Human Microbes Through Big Data

The majority of cells in your body are not human; they belong to the trillions of microbes living in your stomach, intestines, on your skin, and in dozens of other organs. How do these microbes and their DNA help keep you alive and healthy, and what's their role in disease? Scientists have just scratched the surface, but the way forward lies not in growing bacteria in an incubator, but in using computers to analyze unfathomable volumes of DNA data. Bioinformatics expert Katherine Pollard will reveal what that data is telling us about the organisms within ourselves.
