Over the last few years, in excess of $1.7 billion was spent on gut microbiome research. We've tapped into numerous research publications to bring you the latest science-backed findings.
The Biomesight microbiome test provides a snapshot of the gut microbiome utilizing 16S rRNA sequencing technology. You will receive a count and relative abundance percentage of the bacteria in your microbiome, ranging from Phylum down to the species level. 16s DNA sequencing allows us to sequence a specific region (v4) of the 16s gene, and to match these sequences to our curated bacterial database. Using this method we are able to provide relative abundances of all bacterial organisms in your sample rather than targeting just a small subset of bacteria.
We provide an interpretation using Dr Jason Hawrelak's (Probiotic Advisor) recommended ranges for a subset of key bacteria (Probiotics, Commensals and Pathobionts) along with our scoring system, diversity calculation and personalized recommendations for food, supplements and lifestyle adjustments based on up-to-date research findings.
We provide full raw FASTQ data and CSV file downloads for those interested in analyzing their results elsewhere or working with a practitioner.
Biomesight is the only gut microbiome analysis platform with support for FASTQ uploads from multiple labs. Users have full, free access to our platform. This service is also available to research projects for bulk uploads.
