Microbiome research has evolved rapidly over the past few decades and has been linked to many aspects of human and animal health and to the functioning of ecosystems.
A fundamental paradigm shift in our understanding of microorganisms is that eukaryotes are meta-organisms and must be considered together with their microbiota as an inseparable functional unit.
Understanding the complex relationships among microbiomes across diverse hosts and habitats and their associations with the health of humans, animals, and plants, unfolds the potential for innovative and holistic approaches to diagnosis, treatment, and intervention within the context of the One Health concept.
The CGR provides the following services to assess the microbial potential (learning about available microbiota in the given habitat) and the metabolic potential (deciphering available genetic material).
