Mikrobiome – Forschung zwischen Theorie und praktischer Anwendung


Microbiomes are complex microbial communities, with manifold
interactions in a given ecosystem. They are characterized by defined functional properties and pattern of activities. Microbiomes play an
important role as parts of “holobionts” and strongly drive the health
of their particular hosts. The article describes challenges and chances of recent microbiome research and future strategies how to make use of findings from basic research in environmental sciences as well as in medicine.
