Recent studies indicate that skin appearance is dependent on the distribution of microbes, i.e. the skin microbiome. We develop a computational texture model to characterize skin patterns and link them to underlying microbiome clusters. The intersection of appearance and microbiome clusters reveals a pattern of microbiome that is predictable with high accuracy based on skin appearance.
