Researchers, physicians, and the layman alike are becoming more and more interested in understanding the role and function of the microbiome, and how it may be contributing to different states of health and disease.

In the Department of Oral Pathology and Microbiology at Bharati Vidyapeeth Dental College and Hospital in India, assistant professor Priya Nimish Deo is collecting data and reviewing the current literature on the composition of the oral microbiome and how it may cause a variety of human diseases.

Until the relatively recent development of a number of sequencing methods, only microbes capable of being cultured in the lab could be identified, but all of that is changing quickly.

This will open the door to an unprecedented amount of information about the bacteria in our mouths and the diseases throughout our bodies.

Tune in for the details on all of this and more, including:

  • How proteomics, metagenomics, and metabolomics differ from one another and are contributing to the identification and understanding of the oral microbiome
  • What useful functions microbes provide in the mouth
  • How microbial dysbiosis leads to changes in the function of microbes
