Genome and microbiome describe two different kinds of genetic information. The genome is the genetic material within the cells of their body, in the case of personal science this mostly refers to the personal, human genome. In contrast, the microbiome describes the totality of genomes present amongst the microbial flora that lives in a given habitat, e.g. in a particular body site such as the gut.
