Several clinical conditions, including: inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis), celiac disease, allergy and asthma, obesity, autoimmune diseases, neuropsychiatric conditions, and cancer will be examined through a microbial lens to learn more about the contribution of changes in the microbiota to disease states.
