Microbiome Research at the Fred Hutch Cancer Research Center

This week I'm joining the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center as a scientist studying the impact of the microbiome on human health and disease. I will continue to use next-generation sequencing data to characterize the composition of complex microbial communities (with an eye towards functional metagenomics), and I'm excited to start collaborating with Hutch scientists and contributing to this vibrant research community. 

Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or would like to collaborate on interesting projects. I'll be using this website to post periodic updates on research that catches my eye, and you can follow me on Twitter (@sminot) to stay updated.
