What we do: We are using big data to understand the human microbiome. We’re all covered in trillions of bacteria. We help consumers and organizations understand these bacteria, what they are and what they do. Founded by UCSF scientists and Stanford and Cambridge technologists, our mission is to develop the largest dataset on the human gut in the world and learn from it. Why it's a big deal: There is a wealth of evidence that the human microbiome has profound consequences for our health. It has been correlated with a wide range of health conditions, from obesity, heart health, and IBD to autism, anxiety, and depression. We believe everyone should be able to explore their microbiome and discover how it is influenced by health and lifestyle. Everyone can learn about the bacteria that live on and in their bodies. We want to equip people with the tools to create their own scientific studies. We believe in the power of citizen science.
