The gut microbiome  impacts health and risk of disease by dynamically
integrating signals from the host and its environment. High throughput
sequencing technologies enable individualized characterization of the
microbiome composition and function.  The resulting data can potentially
be used for personalized diagnostic assessment, risk stratification,
disease prevention and treatment.  In this talk, I will present several
ongoing microbiome studies at the University of Pennsylvania and provide
some empirical evidence of using microbiome in precision medicine. I
will talk about some statistical issues related to species abundance
quantification, compositional data regression and mediation analysis.
