Using Supercomputers to Discover the 100 Trillion Bacteria Living Within Each of Us

SESSION: Invited Talks 4

EVENT TYPE: Invited Speakers

TIME: 3:30PM - 4:15PM

SESSION CHAIR: William Kramer

Presenter(s):Larry Smarr

ROOM:New Orleans Theater

ABSTRACT:

The human body is host to 100 trillion microorganisms, ten times the number of cells in the human body and these microbes contain 100 times the number of DNA genes that our human DNA does. The microbial component of our “superorganism” is comprised of hundreds of species with immense biodiversity. Thanks to the National Institutes of Health’s Human Microbiome Program researchers have been discovering the states of the human microbiome in health and disease. To put a more personal face on the “patient of the future,” I have been collecting massive amounts of data from my own body over the last five years, which reveals detailed examples of the episodic evolution of this coupled immune-microbial system. An elaborate software pipeline, running on high performance computers, reveals the details of the microbial ecology and its genetic components. We can look forward to revolutionary changes in medical practice over the next decade.
