This research service provides an overview of the technologies that enable microbiome research. Technological enablers address challenges in microbiome data collection and analysis, product development, and manufacturing.

Academic and research institutes, public and private organizations, and companies collaborate to develop and use integrated omics, machine learning, artificial intelligence and microbial engineering tools through synthetic biology and powerful data analytics tools to manage vast amounts of microbiome data.

Knights Lab, Metabiomics, and Eagle Genomics are examples of companies that offer machine learning and data analysis tools to facilitate research into the microbiome. Pacific Biological Sciences, MacCoss Lab of the University of Washingtonand IsoPlexis are developing omics technologies to improve microbiome research and address its challenges.

The study highlights notable funding and investment trends that facilitate microbiome research globally. United State Leading the funding landscape as many public and private institutions support microbiome research and adoption, leading to increased partnerships between industry and academia.

Microbiome research is increasing in the wake of technological advances and significant reductions in the cost of microbiome analysis. Research has unlocked the potential of the microbiome in medical use cases, yielding tremendous insights into its nature, interactions, and impact within a host and in an outdoor environment.

Advanced studies on the role of microbes and their interactions with the host have enabled the development of innovative therapeutic strategies and diagnostic techniques. Research is also being conducted to explore applications of the microbiome in non-medical industries, such as agriculture, waste processing, landfills, and the marine industries.

The enabling technologies, namely digital technologies, omics, synthetic biology, and microbial farming technologies, advance microbiome research and development (R&D), manufacturing, product development, and marketing. Advances in digital technologies, such as big data analytics, machine learning, and artificial intelligence, contribute to the collection, synthesis, and analysis of microbiome data for various applications.

Omics technologies such as genomics, transcription, proteomics and metabolism are improving the characterization of microbiome data, host-microbiome interactions, microbial response to external stimuli, DNA sequencing, RNA sequencing, proteins and metabolic profiles. Synthetic biology facilitates the design of engineered microbes for therapeutics, cell-based biosensors for diagnosis, complex switches and synthetic gene networks for drug discovery.

Likewise, technological advances in high-throughput culture techniques enable the cultivation of microorganisms that were not previously culturable. These technological enablers are opening up new opportunities and applications for microbiome-based products in industries.
