Microbiome Stakeholder Briefing #3: National Microbiome Data Collaborative
Hosted by the American Society for Microbiology (ASM) and the National Microbiome Data Collaborative (NMDC)

Microbiome research is fundamental to health, climate, and ecosystems. Some of the most important developments in modern science have resulted from harnessing the power of microbes, from vaccine development for smallpox to the development of biofuels. This briefing series allows Members of Congress and their staff to gain exciting, first-hand knowledge on a variety of topics centered on microbiome research across the spectrum of scientific disciplines—from the human microbiome and gut health, to agriculture and soil health, to space, the oceans, and beyond.

Harnessing Data for Solutions: The National Microbiome Data Collaborative

This webinar, jointly sponsored by the National Microbiome Data Collaborative and the American Society for Microbiology, will showcase the NMDC’s role in developing a microbiome data ecosystem together with the scientific research community and the federal government. It will highlight the importance of data sharing in the microbiome sciences and demonstrate why continued federal investment in research infrastructure to support Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable (FAIR) microbiome data, such as data standards, computational infrastructure, and workforce, is critical for advancing microbiome research with broad societal impacts.
