Coexisting with the Microbiome - lessons and future trends

Bacteria, viruses, fungi, and bacteriophages coexist with us and interplay with each other in our bodies creating a complex and dynamic ecosystem. What are these organisms doing and what can we learn about our own physiology and diseases when studying the microbiome? Which diagnostic techniques and applications are dominating the field today? Can we repair ourselves through the manipulation of the microbiome? Can these methodologies be used for other applications?
