The National Microbiome Project

The National Microbiome Project

Era7 Bioinformatics is proud to participate in the National Microbiome Initiative (NMI).

The NMI aims to advance understanding of microbiome behavior and enable protection and restoration of healthy microbiome function. In a year-long fact-finding process, scientists from Federal agencies, academia, and the private sector converged on three recommended areas of focus for microbiome science, which are now the goals of the NMI:

  • Supporting interdisciplinary research to answer fundamental questions about microbiomes in diverse ecosystems.
  • Developing platform technologies that will generate insights and help share knowledge of microbiomes in diverse ecosystems and enhance access to microbiome data.
  • Expanding the microbiome workforce through citizen science, public engagement, and educational opportunities.

  • Global Alliance for Genomics and Health

The Global Alliance for Genomics and Health (Global Alliance) was formed to help accelerate the potential of genomic medicine to advance human health. It brings together over 220 leading institutions working in healthcare, research, disease advocacy, life science, and information technology. The partners in the Global Alliance are working together to create a common framework of harmonized approaches to enable the responsible, voluntary, and secure sharing of genomic and clinical data.

 

  • MassBio

The Massachusetts Biotechnology Council is an association of more than 650 biotechnology companies, universities, academic institutions and others dedicated to advancing cutting edge research. MassBio is the leading advocate for the Bay State's world premier life sciences cluster.

  • Asebio

ASEBIO is the Spanish Bioindustry Association. ASEBIO brings together companies, associations, foundations, universities, research and technology centers that carry out activities directly or indirectly related to biotechnology in Spain.

Since 1999 ASEBIO has been acting as a meeting and promotion platform for those organizations interested in stimulating the national biotechnology scene. In order to do this, ASEBIO works closely with regional, national and European governments as well as all the social organizations interested in using biotechnology to improve the quality of life, the environment and generating skilled employment.
