Digital Gut™

Your Digital Gut is a map of your gut microbiome. It shows two layers of information:

  • Abundance: The size of each circle represents the relative abundance of a group of organisms.
  • Taxonomy: The position of each circle indicates how they are related. All circles that belong to the same higher group are positioned inside the area of that higher group.

In short, the visualization shows abundance i.e. how much is there of an organism, and taxonomy i.e. how related is this organims to others.

  • Knowing the abundance allows us to see which species dominate your gut.
  • Knowing the taxonomy allows us to compare your results with scientific research at any level of depth.

Richness

This visualisation of richness shows a circle for each gut microbe.

  • Black circles: Show the individual species present in your gut.
  • Gray circles: Show all species that we know could exist in the human gut but undetected in your gut.
  • Species are sorted alphabetically.

Note: Low microbiome richness is considered to be less resilient than microbiome communities with high richness.
