Presented by Dr. Cecil Lewis, University of Oklahoma, Department of Anthropology and Laboratories of Molecular Anthropology and Microbiome Research.

It is now well accepted that human microbiomes are actively involved in human health and changes in our microbiomes from living more sanitized and industrialized lifestyles have led to susceptibility to certain diseases. This talk introduces the human microbiome, molecular anthropological studies of human microbiome diversity, and the implications of such studies in understanding human health.
