Buildings, Beneficial Microbes, and Health

Jordan Peccia, Sarah E. Kwan

Department of Chemical and Environmental Engineering, Yale University, 9 Hillhouse Ave, PO Box 208286, New Haven, CT 06520, USA.

Abstract

Bacteria and fungi in buildings exert an influence on the human microbiome through aerosol deposition, surface contact, and human and animal interactions. As the identities and functions of beneficial human microbes emerge, the consequences of building design, operation, and function must be understood to maintain the health of occupants in buildings.

Keywords: beneficial microbes; indoor air; asthma; human microbiome; indoor microbiome.
