However, opportunities for the public to get involved in such research has been limited. Now, American Gut gives you an opportunity to join this research project and to compare the microbes in your gut to those in the guts of thousands of other people in the US and around the world. American Gut is a project built on open-source, open-access principles.
Our Project guts are for the good of understanding and will be shared both with participants and with other scientists.
Our experience has been that our best ideas and work come when we involve people in as many steps of our work as possible, be they scientists, educators, roofers, ultra-marathon runners or corporate leaders.
Everyone has something to offer, whether their sample, their hypotheses, their analyses or their dog yes, their dog, we will get Project guts to that. The more we can understand the complex microbial ecosystems on which we depend, the more everyone will benefit.
A few important points to remember before participating in this research project: Note your de-identified information will be part of a research study and will be made available in a publicly available research database. That is, any personal information that might easily identify who you are will be removed before being placed in the public database.
Once you receive your kit syou will be required to a sign an online consent form and b fill out an online questionnaire. If either are not signed or filled out, we cannot perform the microbiome analysis.
If you decide that you no longer wish to continue in this study, you will be requested to contact the American Gut Project helpline to inform us of your intent to withdraw.
If your sample has not been processed you may request a refund which will be processed through the site where you contributed to the project via PayPal. The consent forms are maintained on the participant website; details are included in your kit. You have the right to obtain the electronic record in a non-electronic form.
If you live in the UK or anywhere else in Europe, visit our sister site British Gut to join this research project. Thousands have enrolled already. This could get pricey. So please make note of this before joining the study.
Folks in the UK click here 3. Our team has sequenced thousands of samples from all over the world 4. Once you sign up, you will receive a swab kit in the mail within weeks.
Also note we do not diagnose disease or provide medical advice of any kind.
By joining American Gut, your sample and diet and lifestyle data will be merged with thousands of other folks and will allow us to explore population-level patterns that will hopefully lead to a better understanding of why we carry the microbes we carry and what aspects of our behavior and disease state drive these microbial patterns.
