Kits currently not being distributed due to American Gut shifting its efforts to COVID-19 research.
(you heard us!) DNA extraction and 16S rRNA sequencing of up to 7 samples. With this perk, you can collect a stool sample every day of the week (or spread them out over time) and send to us, along with your detailed dietary information, or split among a group of seven. See how your New Year’s resolution changed your gut microbes! Or see how much those antibiotics you took for a sniffle affected you. Or your travel to Mexico, where you drank the water. Our microbes change a lot over our lives, but what affects them the most remains largely a mystery.
