Would anybody like to share their uBiome data? It's much more interesting if you can compare your results, either with others or to yourself over time. Please see my GitHub repository and consider editing or adding to it yourself.

I just ordered my first microbiome test. Has anyone published their test results? I would like to compare mine to that.

uBiome gives you a "count" field when you download the raw data for your sample.  It's supposed to relate to the number of organisms found after multiple PCR cycles, but does anybody know what uBiome considers a "count" that is too low?  I've seen counts from 250K to as low as 8K, and I'm wondering how accurate my results from June were (17K).  Anybody else want to chime in and let us know your counts?
