EXPERIMENTAL: Test a new device for sampling. Includes both 16S and shotgun sequencing!
Instead of a swab for sampling we will send you a kit with a swab and an FTA card (similar to the card your doctor uses to look for occult blood in stool). Both the swab and the card will be sequenced. This Perk includes DNA extraction, 16S rRNA sequencing, and shallow shotgun sequencing of the stool sample and shows which bacteria and archaea were present in that sample, along with how much of each kind. You will be able to view, download and print a high-resolution certificate suitable for framing of your results and access to more detailed taxa report of your results - which can be viewed online and downloaded into Excel. We will retain the residual stool material to use in future studies and development of new methods for testing samples.
