We were very happy to welcome the participants in the superb Palais Brongniart to the International Human Microbiome Congress 2012 #IHMC2012, which we think will remain a landmark event in the field of human microbiome research.

Here are a few Take Home Messages we feel are among the most important elements to remember after the Congress:

1. Microbiome diversity matters! In the gut, low is less healthy than high!

2. Large scale quantitative metagenomic studies is what it takes to explore relations between the microbiome and chronic diseases!

3. Standardized protocols are the key to make the most out of large studies and that's what we do with the IHMS project (http://www.microbiome-standards.org)!

Spread the word!
