How to upload your uBiome for analysis

Downloading your uBiome data

After logging into uBiome, you will see an ‘Advanced’ tab on your menu  bar.

  • Click it
  • A dropdown menu will appear
  • Click ‘Download’
  • Choices will appear on the left.


  • Click on Download Taxonomy (Json)
  • Depending on your browser, you may see the data in a new tab or be prompted for a name
  • json
  • If the above case, a Control- S should bring up a dialog to save it:
  • saveas
  • I usually add .json to the end

Using A Mac

  • MAC’s will often save it as a .webarchive which will not work for an upload. So:
    • Open a Text Editor
    • Copy  the entire page and paste it into the text editor.
    • Save the file

You are now ready to upload!


Go to


If the Upload and Consent button is disabled — try again in a few days. Maintenance is on going.

Enter your email and select the file you downloaded above. Then click ‘Upload and Consent’.


REMEMBER to fill in your symptoms so we may match bacteria shifts to symptoms.!

After Upload

A summary will appear. It is important to write down the email or alias used AND the Sample Id to be able to comeback later to review your results when more research data is available.


First Look:

On the menu select ‘Your Overgrowth tree’


This will cause your tree to appear with overgrowths in Red.





Going back to the menu and clicking recommendations, you will see suggestions — based on studies –.

  • In this sample, we see some pretty big weights of what to avoid and what to take!


I’ve included the above image as a clickable table below for readers that are interested in more exploration.

Bottom Line


Within minutes a reader can get an analysis done, instead of waiting weeks for me to have time. The analysis above is still lacking the benefits of my deep-dives into bacteria genus, but that will change as I move the data across.

The same person may return in two weeks and find additional suggestions.
