CSIR microbiome mapping initiative

Project Status: 

This project is based on the investigation of human microbiome in the South African population and using this to quantify/describe the specific microbiomes present in South Africans. This project aims to create a national digital platform for the analysis of the human microbiomes present and develop health models for predicting health outcomes and solutions.

This is also a part of the development of a national digital platform to create personally tailored treatment outcomes and health solutions.
