Unlocking Microbiome Science For a Healthier Future

OpenBiome is radically increasing scientists’ understanding of the microbiome through our inclusive platform, unique research tools, and the most globally representative microbiome library of its kind.

Our Global Expansion

Building on our success as a pioneering biobank for fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT), OpenBiome is expanding our mission. We are working with scientists and community leaders from around the world to conserve microbiome diversity and catalyze research by sharing a globally representative microbiome library. This work is done through our new flagship program, the Global Microbiome Conservancy (GMbC) Program.
