This thesis provides supporting evidence for the role of the microbiome in asthma and allergy in the context of contrasting environments, Eastern/developing versus Westernised/developed environment. The Westernised environment has reshaped the microbial composition profile of human microbiomes, and these altered microbiomes are more likely to contribute to the increased rates of asthma and allergy.
