We are excited to launch the website for the Global Microbiome Conservancy! We initiated the first discussions about this project more than 2 years ago, in January 2016. At that time, the project was still in its infancy. Two years later, the Global Microbiome Conservancy has grown, became an international consortium and has already started to meet its objectives: collecting, conserving and understanding the global human microbiome. We are now very happy to publicly present you the initiative with this website. More exciting news to come, stay tuned!
