Your (Bacterial) Home: The Next Ecological Frontier

Welcome to the Wild Life of Our Homes Project Participant Site!

Thanks for signing up to explore the microbial life of your home with us. Microbes are abundant and ubiquitous on our bodies, in the environment, and in our homes, yet we know so little about their diversity in the most everyday places. We aim to change that by building an atlas of house-associated microbial diversity. is the Project Participant Site for Wild Life of Our Homes (WLOH). All WLOH participants must complete the site’s online registration form. You’ll then receive an email from us confirming your successful registration and will be prompted to follow a link to set a new password.

Why all of this rigmarole?
You need a user ID and password to:
