These microorganisms – which make up your gut microbiome – have been implicated in maintaining optimal health, as well as many chronic conditions, including diabetes, obesity, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, coronary artery disease, psoriasis, lupus, and autism. By taking care of your 40 trillion microbe friends, you can maximize your wellness and potentially prevent disease.
Chronic disease is 90% of the costs of the medical system.
You have 20,000 genes.
Your 40 trillion friends have 800,000 genes!
How unique are you?
DNA: 99% commonality
Microbiome: only 5% commonality
Every living organism produces RNA molecules from their DNA. By sequencing all of the RNA in your stool, Viome can identify and quantify all of the living microorganisms in your gut (bacteria, viruses, bacteriophages, archaea, fungi, yeast, parasites, and more) at the species and strain level. The end result? A higher resolution view of your gut microbiome than has ever been available before.
