You Can Be a Citizen Scientist!
Our sample kit contains everything you need to swab and submit your microbiome. Whether for your mouth, ears, nose, GI tract, or genitalia, your kit will allow you to learn more about your microbiome. You swipe the sample swab across the corresponding site and send the kit back to us.
Our online survey lets you ask and answer questions about your health, lifestyle, demographics, social connections, and more! Then you can see how you correlate with other people in our dataset.
Once we have sequenced your samples, our team will analyze the results to explore scientific research questions such as how the microbiome influences human health and disease. You will be able to design your own experiments; together, we’ll use the uBiome data set to answer your questions.
