I will pay for the following article Longitudinal Analysis of Microbial Interaction Between Humans And The Indoor Environment. The work is to be 5 pages with three to five sources, with in-text citations and a reference page. Microbiological assessment of microorganisms in homes and apartments highlight a complex interaction between residents of house and microorganisms that are present on and around the residents and are carried with them where they move. Thus, these swarming microscopic communities play a vital role in fixing the health and disease conditions, transmission as well as treatment of the disease.
In this era of urbanization, overcrowding is prevailing. confining individuals to the indoor environment. As a result, a person is constantly interacting with the microbiota of home and also mediates their transmission while moving out from home.
Microbiota of the individual is like a fingerprint which gets transmitted to the new location through respiration, skin shedding, contact with commodities such as a coffee mug, door handles called skin-surface. Skin surface harbours trillions of microorganisms and thus transfer them in every activity.
The diversity of home microbiota directly influences the health conditions and immune defence of the inhabitants, thereby providing a road map to the health conditions of the home. Considering the serious implication of microorganisms present in an indoor environment on the health of the inhabitants, Lax et al., (2014) carried out a detailed analysis of microorganisms present in the indoor environment, the homes. The study aimed to understand the intricate interaction between microbes in the closed environment of home and inhabitants.
The study encompassed seven ethnically diverse families of the United States. Their homes were also monitored for six weeks along with the eighteen participants (the inhabitants of the houses), three dogs and a cat. The study involved the collection of a sample from three families immediately before and after their shifting to the new location. The eighteen participants used to provide samples b swabbing their noses, hands and feet to understand the microbial population living they possess. The samples were also collected from the surface of various commodities encompassing floors, doorknobs and light switches which are touched by individuals frequently. DNA analysis of the samples was performed to characterize the diversification of microbial population present in each sample. .
