What is precision sequencing™?
Precision sequencing is a patented combination of full metagenomic and marker-based sequencing that allows you to see more of your microbiome, including viruses and fungi in addition to archaea and bacteria. Knowing all of the genes in your microbiome also allows us to do better functional annotation of the microbiome -- that is, to know what your microbes are doing in your gut.
