Dr. Krauter's research focuses primarily on understanding the relationship between human microbial populations and human development and disease. Using a combination of genetic analyses, environmental assessments and high-throughput DNA sequence classification of endogenous microbial populations in the mouth and gut, we examine how microbes may respond to and be are responsible for environmental exposures, normal and disease states.
