Posted by: | April 25, 2018 | Comments

About this Document

This plan was developed by the Microbiome Interagency Working Group (MIWG), an interagency working group under the Life Sciences Subcommittee (LSSC) of the National Science and Technology Council (NSTC) Committee on Science (CoS). The MIWG is a successor to the Fast Track Action Committee on Mapping the Microbiome (FTAC-MM).

About the Fast Track Action Committee on Mapping the Microbiome

The Fast Track Action Committee on Mapping the Microbiome (FTAC-MM) was established in February 2015 by action of the LSSC. The FTAC-MM released a report in November 2015 identifying areas of current Federal investment, research needs, and resource gaps for the development of an integrated Federal plan for microbiome research. The report identified priority areas for Federal agency coordination and cooperation on achieving a predictive understanding of microbiomes and their functions.
