The ribosome is the factory that makes proteins and is found in all cells, and fascinatingly it is mostly made of RNA. One RNA subunit, called the 16S rRNA, is especially effective as a barcode for understanding which microbes (specifically, bacteria and archaea) are found in a given sample. This Perk includes DNA extraction and 16S rRNA sequencing of one stool sample (or an oral or skin sample – the same kit works for any of these), 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.
