The human microbiome has emerged as a hitherto unknown causal factor in a number of disease
ranging from cancer cardiovascular disease and obesity To understand the biochemical mechanisms
of the human microbiome in these diseases researchers must be able to store biochemical pathway
transcriptomic and metabolomic datasets in a coherent and compatible form We propose to construct a
cloud based microbiome analytics platform service that provides both common data processing tools
along with integration of a standards compliant database that can be queried to provide cross dataset
and inter modal data comparative analytics The human microbiome is the collection of bacteria that live inside of all people and researchers have
determined that these bacteria play a causal role in many diseases such as obesity Our proposal will
create an analysis system for processing large volumes of data from the human microbiome allowing
efficient and easy data processing for both academic researchers and for profit biotechnology
