uBiome

The World's Most Innovative Companies 2018

San Francisco-based uBiome is all about understanding the human microbiome, the trillions of bacteria, fungi, and viruses that live inside the human body. This microbial ecosystem plays a significant yet far-from-fully understood role in our health, which is why uBiome has worked since 2012 to sequence and analyze it, collecting more than 150,000 samples via do-it-yourself “Explorer” swab kits that the company sells online. By amassing this data, uBiome claims to have built the largest human microbiome database in the world, and has rolled out a portfolio of unique products based on this information, including SmartGut, a clinical test designed to help customers improve their dietary health, and SmartJane, a microbiota analysis aimed at screening for HPV and detecting STIs.
