General Statement

Global Water Microbiome Consortium

GWMC was formed in May, 2014. The overall mission of this consortium is to provide a platform to facilitate international collaboration and communication on research and education on global water & wastewater microbiome studies. Under this consortium, various efforts/projects can be initiated, such as municipal wastewater microbiome initiative (MWMI) and anaerobic digester microbiome initiative (ADMI).

The overall goal of current initiatives are to provide system-level mechanistic understanding of the diversity, distribution, succession, and stability of global water & wastewater microbiomes using high throughput metagenomic technologies.
