Our first official figures!

Kitty Microbiome Project friend and new co-investigator Rob Beiko recently began collecting and analysing KMP samples from his kitty Bamboo, using the GenGIS mapping software developed in his lab.

In Figure 1, we see the distribution of microbial species across Bamboo in a normal state.
Figure 1. Bamboo is colonized by a number of novel species. A significant amount of mouse sequence was found in the oral sample.

In Figure 2, we can see the effect of Bamboo's tongue-bath.
Figure 1. Why look, the oral and anal micro biome have become one! We have achieved singularity!

Thank you Bamboo for this wonderful contribution. We look forward to you submitting future samples all over Rob's carpets.
