#CrowdCloudLIVE After each episode's WORLD premiere in April, show host, producer, and people seen on the show participated in post-premiere roundtable discussions. Viewers like you listened in, asked questions, and were able to dive deeper into the power of Citizen Science.

Watch the recorded Facebook Live events now. Discover more about how Citizen Science is revolutionizing the ways we gather, analyze, and utilize the data that fuels scientific research, discovery, and community action.

GOAL:

Collect data on human microbiomes.

The human body is a fascinating landscape of biology, teeming with bacteria - and uBiome wants a sample of yours! It’s the world’s first effort to map the human microbiome through citizen science. The microbiome is the microscopic bacteria that live in us, as well as on us. Some are good, some are bad, but there are actually a lot of helpful germs that we need. There are many conditions related in ways yet to be fully understood to the human microbiome, including asthma, diabetes, depression, and even autism. Bringing cutting-edge technology right to you (the cost is about $89 USD), uBiome researchers are expanding their knowledge on how our microbes affect our health. The more data they collect, the more they will learn and be able to share with you!
