Microbiome Testing

Citizen Science!

“The Human Microbiome Project and other microbiome projects worldwide have laid an important foundation for understanding the trillions of microbes that inhabit our bodies and their impact on health and disease. However, opportunities for the public to get involved in such research have been limited. Now, American Gut gives you an opportunity to join this research project and learn what’s living on and inside you

American Gut is a project built on open-source, open-access principles. The data we collect is de-identified and then deposited into open repositories for the benefit of other researchers and scientists.

Join the project” from anywhere in the world!

If you live in Europe, you may prefer to join British Gut, a more regionally specific project.
