There are nuances and complexities to each organism that can be misleading without context. For this reason, we decided that it’s better to not include the descriptions. Remember: the name of a microbe by itself doesn’t matter. What matters is what these microbes are doing, and Viome is the only company that can determine microbial function. Many microbes can perform the same function and each microbe can perform multiple functions.

We do not expect you to interpret your results on your own. Our artificial intelligence engine considers the functions of all of your organisms in order to generate your personalized recommendations.
