The Home Microbiome Study is lead by PI Jack Gilbert, postdoc Daniel Smith, and technician Jarrad Hampton-Marcell at Argonne National Laboratories, and funded by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. This study is working in collaboration with MicroBE.net and the Earth Microbiome Project to bring together microbial samples from as many environments as possible in order to understand how microbial community structure is shaped by environmental factors.
