Microbiome FY2022 Stakeholder Letter

May 14, 2021

Dear Chairman Leahy, Vice Chairman Shelby, Chairwoman DeLauro and Ranking Member Granger:

"Research on the microbiome aims to advance understanding of microbial communities (microbiomes) and how they interact with the world around us. This research has broad, practical implications for human nutrition, health care, food production, and environmental restoration to benefit individuals, communities, and the environment. Understanding of the microbiome has evolved significantly since the concept of the human microbiome emerged roughly two decades ago. Today it is understood that microbial communities exist on, in, and around people, plants, animals, soil, oceans, and the atmosphere, making the microbiome relevant to all living things. The rapid pace of discovery has led to greater technology needs and data sharing infrastructure."
