Last year I interviewed Jessica Richman of uBiome, a company that makes it possible to test your microbiome and identify the kinds of bacteria that make up the vast majority of the DNA inside your body. Back in November, I sent in a sample of my gut bacteria (yes that requires a fecal sample), you can also test the biome from your skin, nose, mouth, and genitalia. I just got my results and have been pouring through since this is a very different kind of test than most people are used to seeing. The more samples that get submitted the better the information will become and we may be able to use this data to create more targeted therapies for various disorders in the future. So head over to uBiome and order your kit.
