DNA-based gut microbiome analyses have been available for years. They include 16S and metagenomic sequencing technologies, which have identified strong connections between the gut microbiome and human health. However, these technologies cannot provide accurate food and supplement recommendations that can improve many aspects of human health. To do this comprehensively, it is critical to measure what the microbes are doing for you, the host — which can only be done with the technology called “metatranscriptomics,” which measures microbial activity (which microbes are present and how active they are), and also their biochemical functions (what they are doing).
