Announcing The New uBiome Data Website

I think you’ll be excited to see this. If you’re new to uBiome, or already have 50 samples under your belt, we have some great news for you. The microbiome timeline has arrived. 

The new uBiome site officially launches today at http://app.ubiome.com. Now it’s easy to see all your samples in one place, and find out how your microbiome is changing over time.

When you log in, you’ll see something like this.

You can drill down deep into each sample shown in the timeline graph. Find out how you compare to all the samples in the uBiome community, or just to specific groups like women or men, vegans or paleo enthusiasts, and people with acne or yeast infections.

You’ll see how you’re different. And explore what that might mean.

At the bottom of the dashboard, you can download your raw sample data and explore your bacterial tree. We’ve also thrown in a few fun things to read that will always be fresh for you each time you come. At the very bottom are links to the uBiome community around the web, for you to connect with if you so choose.

When you’re taking your samples, the My Samples page will both give you instructions and let you know the status of your precious microbial specimens. We’ll get them back to you just as soon as we can.

For each sample, there is a set of survey questions to help connect your current state of health and lifestyle choices with the state of your microbiome. It’s like a snapshot in time. The more questions you answer, the easier it will be to make correlations and even new discoveries about human health as it relates to our bacterial friends.
