The Human Virome - Implications for Clinical Practice in Transplantation Medicine. Journal of clinical microbiology Tan, S. K., Relman, D. A., Pinsky, B. A. 2017


Advances in DNA sequencing technology have provided an unprecedented opportunity to study the human virome. Transplant recipients and other immunocompromised hosts are at particular risk for developing virus-related pathology; thus, the impact of the virome on health and disease may be even more relevant in this population. Here we discuss technical considerations in studying the human virome, the current literature on the virome in transplant recipients, and near future applications of sequence-based findings that can further our understanding of viruses in transplantation medicine.
