MetaHIT (METAgenomics of the Human Intestinal Tract) is a collaborative project, funded by the European Commission, gathering 15 institutes from 8 countries. It was born of the idea that, with the rapid development of sequencing technologies, researchers could imagine explore the genetic potential of human microbial companions and understand their impact on our health and well being. The microbes of the…
