Personalized medicine will customize healthcare practices to individuals. Currently, we are developing microbial ecology techniques to better understand the interactions of macro-organisms, like corals and humans, with their viral and microbial communities. In this talk, I will discuss how approaches enable us to understand how healthy human and coral ecosystems function, as well as understand how disease states arise.
