Ever wonder what stool test you should be ordering for your patient? In this lecture, we will review the research to assess culture, PCR, and next generation sequencing stool testing, including 16S rRNA sequencing, whole genome sequencing, and metatranscriptomic sequencing. We will review best methodologies for assessing bacteria, yeast and parasites in the microbiome as well as best practices for stool collection. Lastly, we will review the most up to date research on the relative abundance of different bacteria in the large intestine.
