About Human Skin Microbiome Database
Our skin is home to millions of bacteria, fungi and viruses that composes the skin microbiota.
Skin microorganisms have adapted to utilize the sparse nutrients available on the skin. The
skin microbiome is inhabited by many of the bacterial species. HSMD is a
database to provide the scientific community with comprehensive curated information on the
bacterial species present in the human skin microbiota. In HSMD we have
compiled the information of different skin microbiome diseases (Acne, Psoriasis, Atopic
Dermatitis, Rosacea, leprosy and Eczema). HSMD is the first database of this
kind i.e. to provide the inclusive curated information about the species present in the human
I anticipate this database to serve as a unified information portal for researchers working on skin microbiome diseases.
