Would you get your microbiome sequenced for $69?

Lots of press recently on the microbiome, and a crowdfunding initiative that allows you to sequence your microbiome for only $69 (www.indiegogo.com/ubiome)

What do you think? Would you share your poop with them?

Somehow you've just prompted me to panic spend $69 over the Internet for the privilege of sharing my poop with total strangers on the other side of the world.

It was no use resisting: I just had to buy one of those anal swabs before they all went.

Aaargh! What have I become? Nobody warned me about this when I started all this 'Paleo' stuff! I should have known that signing up to that 'Paleohacks' website was a huge mistake... ;-)

Is this information similar to what you would receive with, say a metametrix stool test? Possibly just without the interpretation portion? I wish the website had a sample report to show what kind of information exactly you are receiving. Any insight on this, anyone?

Finally! The gene test that will be really informative.

Yep would do it. Thanks for link.
