The mycobiome, mycobiota, or fungal microbiome, is the fungal community in and on an organism.[1][2][3]

There is a low abundance of fungi associated with most human body sites, such as the gastrointestinal tract, where fungi typically compose just 0.001 - 0.1% of the microbial community.[4][5] However, fungi compose a significant fraction of the microbiome at some locations, such as the ear canal.[6]

The mycobiome is relevant to human physiology as fungi may be important in maintaining microbial community structure, metabolic function, and immune-priming.[7][8] Mutualism between humans and fungi is not yet well understood, and there is much to be learned about how fungi interact with the nonfungal constituents of the microbiome.

Human Diseases[edit]

Many human diseases, including hepatitis, cystic fibrosis, obesity, and inflammatory bowel disease have been associated with changes in the human mycobiome[9][10], and it has been proposed that any fungal colonization of the GI tract is a sign of disease.[4]
