Hologenomics is the omics study of hologenomes. A hologenome is a whole set of genomes of an ecological niche (the holobiont), including co-habitating microbes, other life forms, and viruses. This may include gut microbeor viral genomes linked to human or animal genomes for host-microbe interaction research. Hologenomics approaches have also been used to explain genetic diversity in the microbial communities of marine sponges.
