The Vaginal Microbiome: Disease, Genetics and the Environment

Identifiers: SRA: SRP002462
BioProject: PRJNA46877
dbGaP: phs000256
NIAID: phs000256_21
Study Type: 
Abstract: This project will define the microbial composition of the human vagina, using state-of-the-art technologies that allow for the direct characterization and enumeration of the microorganisms present. Successful completion of the aims will define the relative contributions of genetics and the environment in the development and diversity of the vaginal microbial populations. Because the vaginal microbiota plays a crucial role in the urogenital tract health of females, evaluation of the factors that influence this first line of defense could lead to important therapies or intervention strategies for protecting women's health.
Center Project: human vaginal metagenome
