Gaining Key Functional Insights into the Microbiome Through Metabolomics

There is increasing evidence that the microbiome plays a broad and important role in human health and disease. Gaining an understanding of the host-microbe interaction and the mechanisms through which the microbiome influences human health can provide new avenues for microbiome research and therapeutic intervention. A key readout of the host-microbe interaction is the metabolome, the metabolites produced by both host and microbial processes that represent the output of biochemical pathways. We will describe how implementing a metabolomics approach to survey the metabolites that broker the host-microbe interaction can enhance insight into this association.
