The Pediatric Obesity Microbiome & Metabolism Study (POMMS) utilized DNA extracted from stool samples to gain insights on the microbiomes of children with obesity. Using these DNA sequences, the David lab can also obtain a diet profile of foods that participants eat, which may be a more effective way to learn about individuals' diet histories than self-report, which can be time-intensive and is subject to recall bias.
This participant report returns the study's results as well as educational material on the microbiome to the individual that provided their stool samples.
