Big Data from Bacteria

Big Data from Bacteria

Founded by UCSF scientists and Stanford and Cambridge technologists, our mission is using big data to understand the human microbiome. We’re all covered in trillions of bacteria. We help consumers and organizations understand what they are and what they do. We're using tools like machine learning, bioinformatics, crowdsourcing, Illumina Hi-Seq, and robots.

uBiome addresses a massive need: dozens of conditions are correlated with the human microbiome (asthma, diabetes, irritable bowel, heart disease, etc.). We are the first and only big data company focused on the microbiome.

Our product accomplishes two goals: 1) allowing consumers access to their microbiome to learn about their bodies, perform experiments, and see how current studies apply to them 2) allowing organizations to learn about the microbiome at scale.
