The human microbiome has billions of cells… We make understanding it easier.
The human microbiome is comprised of billions of microorganisms that live on and within the human body. These microorganisms include bacteria, archaea, fungi, protists, and viruses. Some known locations on and within the body where these microorganisms are present include the gut, skin, lungs, saliva, oral mucosa, conjunctiva, brain, biliary tract, mammary glands, placenta, seminal fluid, uterus, and ovarian follicles.
