Personal Genetics Education Project

National Microbiome Initiative

As the White House Office of Science & Technology Policy unveils plans for the National Microbiome Initiative, pgEd is pleased to announce that we will be developing a series of new educational resources on the microbes – microscopic organisms such as bacteria, viruses and fungi – that surround us. They are in the air, in soil, the oceans; they hide in extreme locations such as the Arctic and give Yellowstone’s geysers their famous colors. We have millions of microbial cells in and on our bodies, and scientists are learning more and more about how these creatures affect health and disease. To read more about the microbiome initiative, pgEd’s commitment, and the commitments of stakeholders across many sectors, check out this fact sheet from the White House.
