Application and scope of the Microbiome

Microbiome studies are incredibly useful in the large variety of fields and applications. Microbiome studies are, literally, invading the world, from the deepest oceans to the highest mountains, from tiny bugs to large and complex animals. From the roots to the leaves. 

Even not living scenarios are being studied: people are doing microbiome analysis of samples from homes, cell phones, airplanes, tools and devices or buildings. And, the analysis of the changes in the microbiota considering diverse conditions like diet, diseases, circadian rhythm, age, geographical location, or different stresses makes that the number of studies increases day by day. 

The consequence of the microbiome revolution: incredible findings and discoveries at a very affordable cost.
