Preliminary Characterization of the American Gut Population
If you have been following American Gut Project, you might be interested in the PDF we just released (see below) of a “top level” summary of the first ~1,000 people who gave it up for science.
We have, as of September 5, 2013, completed sequencing and quality control of the gut bacteria from the first 1080 samples from 844 participants in the American Gut study. While we are working hard on priority #1 – providing your individual results back to you as soon as possible – we thought a quick look at some of the population level data would be interesting.
This document (CLICK HERE for PDF) gives a first look at results for the whole population. Your individual results (if your sample is among these first 1080 samples) will be available shortly.
