The firm uses at least five types of metagenomic assays to detect the relative abundance of microbial species in the oral and pulmonary microbiomes.

The firm's assay is designed to detect the relative abundance of bacteria species in a patient's sample, allowing doctors to improve long-term inpatient care decisions.

An analysis of metagenomic sequences from donor and recipient stool samples highlighted bacterial abundance, phylogeny, and strain features influencing engraftment.

University of Colorado, Boulder, researchers sequenced soil samples from across the world to develop an atlas of bacteria living there.
