Human Microbiome Project – HMP

Human Microbiome ProjectThe first results of the Project on Human microbiome (Human Microbiome Project – HMP) are amazing. The genome of microbes more than 8 million protein-coding genes. In the human and just 22,000. In human bodies inhabited by about 10,000 species of bacteria. Each personcarries approx. A thousand species. It is not known until the end of what’s going on in these differences between individual “loads” of microbes, but it seems that the more species we have in ourselves, that we are healthier.
