The urban microbiome is a very complex system that still has yet to be completely explored. Through DNA sequencing of the microorganisms collected from various objects people use often, the potential to map out the urban microbiome has been created. The purpose of this study is to determine the microorganisms present on personal surfaces, which are typically used by a single individual or a few people; as compared to surfaces that are used often by a multitude of people—public surfaces.
