Metatranscriptomic Sequencing Technology
If you've ever had your gut or microbiome tested, you likely were tested using an old form of sequencing called “16S sequencing” (this is what organizations such as American Gut Project and uBiome utilize). While 16S sequencing can indeed tell you a little bit about your gut bacteria, it really doesn't compare to Viome’s comprehensive testing.
Viome uses a type of sequencing Viome called “metatranscriptome sequencing,” It is a complete sequencing of the gut microbiome based on a very small sample.
Every living organism produces RNA molecules from their DNA. By sequencing all of the RNA in your stool, we 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 and actionable personalized insights for you.
